ARMA Encourages Comments to NARA on Automated ERM

    Apr 08, 2014

    As part of its work to satisfy the requirements of the Managing Government Records Directive, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is requesting comments and discussion regarding its recently released draft on Automated Electronic Records Management.

    The draft has two parts:

    • The first section, “Automated Electronic Records Management: Outcomes, Approaches, and Risks” describes desired outcomes, activities to date, and suitable approaches for managing electronic records.
    • The second section, “Automated Electronic Records Management Plan,” describes planned activities and milestones for the government to reach the desired state of well-managed electronic records.

    NARA is seeking feedback by April 25, 2014, which it anticipates including in its final report that is to be finalized in May. 

    As the leader in information governance, ARMA International is calling on its army of experts to help shape future federal policies on managing electronic records. To comment on this draft report, please e-mail them to prmd@nara.gov or post them on the blog at http://blogs.archives.gov/records-express/2014/03/10/comment-and-discuss-the-automated-electronic-records-management-report-and-plan/#comments.
