Management of records

Responsibility for managing records

It is your responsibility to ensure material is stored securely within the office and sensitive or personal information, including staff records, is secured.

Advice from National Archives of Australia

The National Archives of Australia provides advice to parliamentarians on records management, covering:

  • what records to manage
  • creating, controlling and preserving records
  • public access to records
  • disposing of records and safeguarding privacy.

For further advice email personalrecords@naa.gov.au.

IPEA audits of parliamentarians’ claims for public resources

The Independent Parliamentary Expenses Authority (IPEA) is responsible for conducting, or arranging the conduct of, such audits as IPEA considers appropriate of matters relating to resources provided under the Parliamentary Business Resources Act 2017. It is therefore important that you retain records of your claims, in accordance with IPEA’s requirements.
