Monday 22nd May 9:20am - 10:40amScotland - Public Records for the Public: Balancing the Roles and Needs of the Keeper, The Regulator and the Business
Ren will chair the opening panel discussion.
The opening session of the conference looks at the distinctive and vibrant public sector information landscape in Scotland. It aims to do this through looking at the roles and needs of the key stakeholders involved in working with us as a profession to deliver public records for the public.
The session is designed to be lively- taking the form of three 10-minute mini keynotes followed by a 30-minute armchair panel session - with hand-picked ‘in the know’ participants present to represent each of the key stakeholder groups.
With a world-leading public records act and numerous innovative information-dependent Scottish Government initiatives such as GIRFEC (getting it right for every child) and Health and Social Care integration in the mix, this opening session, which will focus on the challenges of delivering these in a climate of ever-increasing regulation, public expectation and technology-driven possibilities set against ever more stretched resource, is sure to both resonate and promote debate amongst Scottish and visiting delegates alike.
