Records are critical to the delivery of the RTI Unit’s programs and services.

They enable RTI Unit to hold itself accountable to its own policies, as well as to commitments made to the Government and the people of Vanuatu.

Records also support management oversight in the conduct of audits, reviews, and reporting. This policy sets out RTI Unit’s requirements for managing its records and defines staff responsibilities.
