Records and policy management

Records relating to departmental policies must be made and kept in accordance with the State Records Act 1998 and the department’s Records Management Program.

Records must be secured and maintained in the department’s approved record management system, HP Records Manager (previously known as TRIM) and should include:

  • approval to start the policy development or review process
  • records of consultations or meetings
  • records of options considered and reasons for decisions made
  • draft versions of policy documents
  • final, approved and published version of the policy and approval brief
  • implementation documents, including any communications to policy users
  • reviews and reports.

Contact the Policy Coordination and Review team if you require assistance with managing records related to policy management.
