Q37 Do you have a question that you feel should be included in future Salary Surveys?
Open-Ended Response

No = 31
What responsibilities are applicable to a Band 5 position in a Records Unit?
What benefits would you like to receive as part of your salary package that you do not currently
receive? Provide a list of possible benefits.
What level of job satisfaction do you have.
How has Global Financial crisis been used to reduce your salary
Shorten the survey
Is your organisation prepared to pay for your professional fees
Information should be forwarded to Tasmanian Local Councils for information
Yes - If more regional events were scheduled, would your organisation participate?
Do you believe your recognition and remuneration is appropriate for the services you provide? If
No, please advise why.
EDRM implementations or EDRM capability; strategy development
Yes - what percentage of your role relates to records / information management.
Include something that is more helpful for the self-employed
What budget amount are you responsible for? What is your delegated spending authority?
Work satisfaction?
SHOULD THERE BE A RECOGNISED BENCHMARK FOR REMUNERATION / SALARIES FOR
RECORDS MANAGERS ETC EG MINIMUM LEVELS
Would you prefer reduced hours rather than increased pay?
Career paths
Do you believe that your salary is suitable for your duties? Do you have the support of your
executive? Do you believe your grade or salary may determine the importance the executive put
on your role?

Does the local government association in your state support RM through training support or other.
Job satisfaction - Do you intend to continue in the industry in the short, medium, long term?
Not a question as such, but a comment on the survey itself - most of the 'other' options don't
work. As in some of these questions I would have put 'other' but the field wont let me specify
what 'other' that would be...
Do you feel your organisation knows what you do and supports it
What training would you like to undertake as a records professional.?
Could the term Information Management be replaced by a more pliable term - content
management as the strength of information is not in the volume but the quality,
As there is a trend to implementing eDRMS perhaps eDRMS questions could be specified in future
surveys
Your bias seems to be towards formal Archive quals. Undersanding and qualifications in database
structures is more relevant in my opinion.
Try to make it NZ friendly i.e. salary NZ dollars and names of organisations
What is the average salary for FOI Officers and should this role be the responsibility of the records
officer
What relevant qualifications do you hold? What other qualifications do you hold? (Not all
qualifications people have are related to Records management). Clarification needed about what
"home location" means.
Yes, regarding question 21. Please have an 'I'm not privy to budget details' option. My answer
there was just a guess.
What kind of Records management system do you use? IE TRIM, Dataworks, InfoXpert etc.
Does your organisation recognise that information is a strategic asset?
Link to KM programs in organisation by RM staff
Would like to see the non Aus locations broken down into regions also
Do you feel undervalued?
What percent of you work involves projects? What project methodolgy is being used? Do you
hold a project certification? If so which certification ....add list
I am a contractor thru a labour hire company that specialises in Records and Library, there are no
questions relating to that, or areas where I can say, that I self fund my profression - Not my
current or previous employers. I am definately not a well paid consultant like so many RMAA
members, I just barely manage to cover my own personal and work expenses.
