Historic Environment Records: Development of an Outcomes Related Framework

This project built on existing standards for local Historic Environment Records (HERs) to measure their progress towards aims, by developing a draft outcomes framework. In simple terms this allows the HER to demonstrate what their work achieves and how they contribute to the wider corporate goals of their parent organisations.

The project team has produced a draft Historic Environment Records Outcomes Framework (HEROF) for test and makes recommendations on how to take the draft version through to its final stage.

Durham County Council, on behalf of ALGAO-UK HER Committee, was commissioned to carry out the project and recruited a team of Historic Environment Officers and other heritage professionals from other local authorities to participate in a workshop.
