INTEROPERABILITY (3) (Preferred term)
The capacity of metadata to be transferred between agencies or migrated across systems with minimal manipulation will allow records to function as authoritative evidence of business activities within and between organisational boundaries for as long as they are required.
The adoption of a common metadata standard among agencies, supported by software vendors, will enable government records to be available, accessible and usable over time, irrespective of the agency or system within which they reside at any given time.
