Standards & Best Practices

The Vermont State Archives and Records Administration (VSARA) is charged with administering the statewide records management program in accordance with professional records and information management practices and principles.

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 has jointly issued the following standards with the Department of Information and Innovation (DII) 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.
