Authors: International Records Management Trust
Date: Jan-2012
Publisher: International Records Management Trust, London, GB
Abstract: Between February 2010 and September 2011, the International Records Management Trust conducted the Managing Records as Reliable Evidence for ICT/ e‐Government and Freedom of Information in East Africa research project, with funding from the International Development Research Centre. The project, conducted by national teams in each of the five East African Community countries (Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda), found that records management issues are not being addressed in relation to the ICT/ e‐ Government and Freedom of Information initiatives that are being planned and implemented within the region, and that this situation placed these initiatives at risk. The research consisted of a high level exploration of the extent of integration between national ICT/ e‐Government and Freedom of Information initiatives and records management. An indepth study of electronic court case management systems was undertaken in order, to assess the practical effects of integration or lack of integration on records, systems and citizens.
