The Records and Archives Management Division was established in 1999 through the Government Notice Number 289 of 1999. Through this notice, the Government transferred the National Archives of Tanzania from the Ministry of Education and Culture to the President’s Office, Public Service Management.

However, the initiatives to effectively manage the records and archives started in 1963 when the President issued Circular No.7 which emphasized on the proper care and disposal of public records. The newly independent Tanzania saw the importance of proper records and archives management in order to implement effectively the new roles.

For that reason, the government established the National Archives of Tanzania in 1964, and subsequently enacted the National Archives Act No. 33 of 1965. This Institution was mandated to safeguard the archives of the United Republic of Tanzania.
