PROS 11/01 G2 Implementing a Storage Programme Guideline covers information that is needed to make decisions regarding the management of public records held in storage through the development and implementation of a storage programme.

A storage programme coordinates the planning, delivery and reporting undertaken by various business teams, outsourced providers and shared services regarding the storage of agency records. This guideline applies to all public records in the custody of a Victorian government agency. This includes records that are stored within the agency, by shared services, or within an Approved Public Record Office Storage Supplier (APROSS) facility.

Please note that there is a new version of the Storage Standard and APROSS Specification which are both available via the Standards Framework page. The new Storage Standard (PROS 20/02) replaces both PROS 11/01 Storage Standard and PROS 11/01 S1 Agency Records Storage Specification.

Material in the Public Record Office Victoria archival collection contains words and descriptions that reflect attitudes and government policies at different times which may be insensitive and upsetting

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples should be aware the collection and website may contain images, voices and names of deceased persons.

PROV provides advice to researchers wishing to access, publish or re-use records about Aboriginal Peoples
