Recordkeeping Guidance

Under the Archives and Recordkeeping Act, the Government Records Office (GRO) promotes and supports good recordkeeping by developing guidance for government departments and agencies.

Nationally and internationally, a wide range of work is being undertaken to develop standards and best practices for recordkeeping. In particular, there is a recognized need for new strategies and tools to effectively manage electronic records. GRO is following these developments and advises government on accepted professional and industry standards, and their application in the Manitoba government. Please contact us for more information.
