3rd Edition of the Department’s (DBCDE) Records Management Manual.

It details records management policy and procedures to be used to support the Department’s business objectives and ensure that we comply with our legislative responsibilities.
The major change in this version of the manual is the inclusion of detailed policies and procedures for managing the Departments electronic documents. In particular the manual provides you with detailed guidance for managing Email records which are now a fundamental aspect of Departmental business.
All staff are required to abide by and use the procedures in this manual. I encourage you to put these new procedures into practice to ensure that our obligations in relation to record keeping are met.

 

Outlook Archive (.pst) files are not to be filed because these are containers of documents, they must be opened in Outlook and each individual message is to be file appropriately.
