BC Government Moves To Modernize Information Management

Province of BCThe new Government Information Act will modernize B.C.’s approach to information management, increasing efficiency, making better use of taxpayer dollars, as well as providing better, faster access to archival government information through new digital archives. Once approved, this new legislation will replace the Document Disposal Act, which was enacted in 1936.

Under the new act, government will transition to mandatory digital archiving and storage of almost all of its records. These digital archives will be open to the public and searchable online.

The legislation also creates a new chief records officer position, responsible for overseeing retention, digitization and archiving of government information. This position will also oversee the transition from the current paper-based archiving system to the new digital platform.

This change will streamline government document management and will help improve efficiency and access to government information, while saving time and money. The transition to digital information management will begin in the spring of 2015 and is expected to take three years.
