Our team supports government agencies in meeting their legislative responsibilities as required by Parts 4 and 6 of the State Records Act 1998. We provide advice on managing access directions, preparing and requesting archives of any format for transfer, submitting transfer plans, agency retrieval of state archives, series registration and information about Regional Archives Centres.
