Policies and Procedures for the Management of Electronic Records in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa

Segomotso Masegonyana Keakopa

Abstract


This article focuses on policies and procedures for the management of electronic records in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. Using the data collected in 2003 and 2004 as part of the author's doctoral research, the article reports that policies and procedures for the management of electronic records were non-existent in Botswana and Namibia. These policies and procedures are, however, important for directing and guiding records officers on better approaches to the management of electronic records. In contrast, South Africa was advanced in the area of policy development. The article makes recommendations on how Botswana and Namibia could proceed in their effort to develop policies and procedures for the management of electronic records in their countries.
