This article introduces the Regulatory Framework for the Management of Records, a high level statement of the elements that need to be in place at the national level if governments are to manage records adequately in the hybrid paper / digital environment and in support of FOI regimes. The authors use the framework to analyse the Kenyan, Ugandan and Tanzanian findings of an International Records Management Trust research project, in which both authors were involved.
