Records Management The Department of Justice is responsible for the Information Act with the exception of Part 9 of the Act which deals with Records and Archive Management. The Department of Business and Employment is responsible for those sections of Part 9 that relate to Records Management and the Department of Natural Resources, Environment, the Arts and Sport is responsible for those sections of Part 9 that relate to Archives Management. It is important for public sector organisations to maintain accurate and complete records of their business for a variety of reasons, not least to be able to locate and identify information for prompt responses to applications for access to information under the Act. The Information Communications Technology (ICT) Policy and Strategy Unit in the Department of Business and Employment is responsible for providing guidance to organisations about records management. During the year, staff from the Unit worked closely with the Office on the development of guidelines about cloud computing and working with contract service providers. The Office is currently part of a steering committee to oversee a review of the NT Government's existing records management system, TRIM.
