SA Records Management Service Excellence Award

Nominations are now open for the 2022 Bernadette Bean South Australian (SA) Records Management Service Excellence Award.

The award recognises and celebrates service excellence by eligible SA award nominees who have achieved, or are working towards, best practice and improvement in:

  • records and information management, archive or history collection practices, research or knowledge sharing
  • digital records and information management (e.g. EDRMS, ECM and business system), archives or history collection technologies and digital transformation
  • leadership, mentoring, innovation or dedication and contribution to the industry.

Nominations are encouraged for current or past eligible SA teams / groups, new practitioners, researchers, students, volunteers and other individuals - including quiet achievers or those who go the extra mile - whose outstanding records and information management, archives or history collection service deserves recognition.

Along with navigating the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and other disruptions, the last two years have continued to challenge us to find innovative, flexible and robust business practices, service delivery models, digital solutions and other opportunities to help organisations, teams and individuals adapt to working, collaborating, and accessing and sharing records and information remotely.

Among the challenges faced, we have seen increased demand for secure and integrated access to digital information and services, staff absences, and the capture and governance of records and information from geographically dispersed workers operating across hybrid business environments and ICT applications and platforms.

The award established in honour of the late Bernadette Bean provides a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge and reward outstanding achievements during these and other challenging times.
