Records management responsibility
This element of the Records Management Plan is about defining the officer who has operational responsibility for the records management within the Council.
The Public Records (Scotland) Act requires each public authority to have appointed a nominated officer with the appropriate experience and qualifications to have day-to-day responsibility for the records management function within the organisation.
The officer with day-to-day responsibility for the records management plan within our council is the Senior Information and Improvement Officer. This has been confirmed through our new policy and by agreement of the Corporate Management team on 2 March 2021.
Improvement actions and review
The policy, including determination of the Element 2 officer (see below), will be reviewed every 2 years or to reflect changes in staffing as appropriate.
