Digital Transition Policy

The Australian Commonwealth Government has issued a policy directive which requires all Government agencies to transition from reliance on paper for records towards digital records management for efficiency purposes. The National Archives of Australia has issued a range of information about how this could be done. Some of the information relates to:
* Benefits of going digital
* Obtaining senior management support
* Scanning incoming paper
* Reducing paper stockpiles
* Self-assessment of records management capabilities
* Incorporating records management functionality into business systems
* Reviewing business practices to reduce reliance on paper
