Queensland Government authority, WaterSecure, is looking to deploy an electronic document records management system.
The system will manage documents related to the build out of several water infrastructure projects aimed at supplying purified recycled water and desalinated water to South East Queensland.
The project, detailed in WaterSecure documents, will establish a single, secured source for all documents and records and improve operational efficiency and flexibility for the agency’s document-centric business processes.
It is expected to also: Improve the evidential integrity and reliability of records; accommodate future information management needs such as data warehousing and ability to integrate with evolving business solution requirements; reduce organisational risk; and meet legal and regulatory obligations relating to documents, records and information security.
The project, due to commence in April and be deployed by August, is part of a wider Records Management Project aimed at establishing “a robust framework of policies, procedures, rules, tools and processes to support the implementation of an electronic information management solution”, according to WaterSecure.
“Implementing a records management program underpinned by an electronic information management solution supports WaterSecure’s compliance obligations under the Public Records Act 2002 and other legislation; the principles of good governance under AS 8000 Corporate Governance and document control under ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems,” the documents read.
