The records project money that records doesn’t get because they “aren’t records job”

Mostly goes to “data” projects.

Because most data projects rely on records.

They take records and improve the quality of the records to the point where their information content is accessible enough to be valuable as an input to something else.

Or they take records and improve the quality of the information in them so they can run statistical analysis and use the information to make evidence based decisions

These are all records projects.

The reason that they’re not coming to records, is that most records managers have decided that raising the quality of their records isn’t their job.

So someone else is doing it.

And records “doesn’t have enough people” and “doesn’t get enough money”.

Because most records managers have decided that the valuable bit is someone else’s job.
