The Office assists ministries/departments on request with the review or setup of registries. The Office has produced and distributed two Registry Procedure Manuals to assist in the improvement of registry systems and promote a process of standardisation. The Office has assisted twenty-five (25) agencies with the review and upgrade of their respective registries. In a few cases reports were submitted for consideration of recommendations but the majority required ‘implementation’ assistance. The Office is presently working with the Archives Department in developing a Records Management Policy for the Public Service.
