Standards & Best Practices

The Vermont State Archives and Records Administration (VSARA) is charged with administering the Statewide Records and Information Management Program for all public agencies in accordance with generally accepted record-keeping principles and industry standards and best practices.

Requirements, which are applicable to all public agencies (state and local) for records and information, including "data," created and received in the course of agency business, are on the Records Management main page. 

In addition to recordkeeping requirements, VSARA jointly issued the following standards with the former Department of Information and Innovation (now Agency of Digital Services) to provide consistent advice to public agencies seeking information management assistance and these standards serve as the state’s guiding principles for managing content (records and data). They are based on industry standards and best practices within the State of Vermont.
