Survey of public sector information management
From 2019, the Survey of public sector information management will be delivered regularly (annually for at least the first two years). Survey findings are analysed and reported. The findings also inform the Chief Archivist's Report on the State of Government Recordkeeping. The raw data from the survey is published on data.govt.nz.
Analysis of survey data helps us:
form and share a picture of the performance of public sector information and records management
track performance over time using key health indicators
gather insights on the challenges, risks and opportunities organisations are facing
inform reporting to the government and the public on the state of public sector information and records management
Most regulated organisations, including local authorities, receive the survey. Although we send it directly to Executive Sponsors, it is our expectation that information and records management staff will contribute to the response.
The survey results benefit organisations by:
providing the opportunity for benchmarking your organisation’s information and records management performance
showing your organisation’s information and records management performance over time
