If you’ve ever looked into how access to information and records management intersect you’ve come across concepts of duty to document. This audio course will help you and your organization better understand the nature and relationship between records creation and access, understand relevant legislation as it relates to Duty to Document, and address questions, concerns, and complaints related to recordkeeping as part of transparency and access.
We’ve developed this audio course to help organizations and individuals learn about their Duty to Document, the expectation or requirement that public sector agencies and employees must document transactions and the decision-making processes that occur, and to walk you through the stages of setting up, managing and maintaining your Duty to Document practices in your organization.
To bring this learning to life and make it relevant and easy-to-understand, we’ll follow a records management consultant, Hakim Lafaati, as he goes around visiting various clients assisting in their differing Duty to Document needs. By using a consultant, we are able to look at a Duty to Document from various fields and perspectives.
Includes templates, supporting documents, links to resources and checklists which will aid in incorporating Duty to Document practices into your organization.
