Government legislation such as the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulation legally obliges public authorities to provide information on request within the 20 working days time-scale which means that it is essential for you to practice good records management to ensure information can be quickly identified and retrieved.
Our comprehensive cataloguing and indexing service improves the integrity of the documents in our secure storage facility. Accurate indexing allows the quick retrieval of documents and it is the foundation for identifying which records can be scanned for long term retention.
Poor record keeping exposed the organisation to failures in data compliance.
“Legislation regarding information management of children in our care is ever more important and working with Topwood has given us confidence that our records are safe and that they can easily be accessed if required. Each review meeting includes an element for process improvement and the scanning of records is part of the partnership.” - Steve Jones – Director.
