Modernizing records management
Federal government goes electronic to meet M-19-21 requirements
Using paper records currently wastes millions of dollars and thousands of hours to maintain within the federal government. In the age of IT modernization, federal agencies are working on moving from paper-based records to electronic records management. Several policies are in place to help agencies navigate the transition, including NARA’s M-19-21, which requires all federal agencies to manage permanent records in an electronic format by December 31, 2022.
While the mandate may seem imposing, the right tools can ease the move and make records management more effective than ever before. Agencies should turn to a records solution with automated end-to-end processes using business rules and metadata to power automatic declaration and records filing.
