We understand our obligations to ensure an adequate record of government activities is maintained in accordance with the records management principles under the Information Act. We maintain a records management unit to implement records management systems and processes, drive improvements and provide service and support. We use TRIM as a key records management tool, along with other information management systems. A major focus for the team this year was to review our records in storage with the aim of disposing unrequired documents and creating cost savings. We are a government body, incorporated under the Tourism NT Act and are covered by the NT Governments policy of self-insurance. We maintain separate public liability insurance, business travel insurance and workers compensation insurance to cover specific insurable risks facing our agency. Specific risks include the commercial nature of the tourism industry and regular participation at public events, such as national and international trade shows and conventions and hosting guests on familiarisation trips. Details of our insurance arrangements (both self-insured and commercial), mitigation strategies and processes employed to reduce the risk for each category of insurance and the total number, value and average cost of claims are detailed in Appendix 4.
