ABSTRACT

Trust in government agencies is closely related to accountability. The key strategy to increase public accountability is to document the processes and outcomes of their key tasks and policies adequately. The purpose of this study is to suggest a redesign of the records appraisal policy to enhance the accountability of government agencies. Applying the newly introduced concept of appraisal in ISO 15489-1: 2016, the relationship between accountability and appraisal is articulated and the problems of records appraisal systems in terms of accountability are analyzed. Based on this analysis, it suggests the principles for reforming the appraisal policies well as the redesign of the current disposition authorities as a key tool for appraisal, and the introduction of records disposal freeze system.
