Chief Archivist's Annual Report on the State of Government Recordkeeping 2017-18

This is the eighth report issued by the Chief Archivist under the Public Records Act 2005.

The report draws on our long-term strategy, Archives 2057 Te Rautaki Rua Kāwanatanga 2057, to focus on the collaboration and co-design needed to ensure that the information created by government can be trusted. It covers some of the steps we’ve taken over the 2017/18 year to deliver on our long-term vision and tells you a bit about what we have planned for 2018/19.

The report notes there is still significant room for improvement across the system. It also signals that we are working on a new monitoring framework that will provide an all-of-system view of the health of government information management.

The report’s subtitle, Kia pono ai Te Rua Mahara o te Kāwanatanga – enabling trusted government information, is our recently adopted strapline. It communicates that part of the role of Archives NZ as a regulator is empowering regulated parties to achieve best practice in information management.
