Describe Guideline

Guideline 4 for Records Management


The Describe Principle means ACT Government organisations must adhere to metadata schemas endorsed by the Territory Records Office for records, information and data management. Metadata refers to the naming, identification, searching, classification and categorisation of records, information and data by using defined attributes or fields to ensure consistency across the ACT Government and its business systems. Metadata attributes and fields are required to digitally manage records information and data, and the systems which they are contained in.
