Abstract

The significance of reliable and trustworthy records for public sector accountability and effectiveness, and the impact on citizens’ rights when they are not managed, is far greater than is often realized. Records are the clearest and most durable evidence of the organization’s operations, decisions, and activities. They are the underpinning factor in good governance. The International Records Management Trust (IRMT), a UK-registered charity governed by a board of trustees, exists for the sole purpose of supporting lower-resource countries in tackling the issues involved in managing public sector records as an essential national resource.
