About this event:

During September’s NCC-AIIM meeting, The NARA Office of the Chief Records Officer, USA, presented a keynote session on developing a 21st century framework for Federal recordkeeping based on the overall progress made towards implementing the “Managing Government Records Directive” (M-12-18).  In November, NCC-AIIM will provide an excellent opportunity to have NARA once again present an exciting session on federal recordkeeping, but this time taking a deeper look on technology and automation initiatives under the OMB/NARA M-12-18 Directive.  NARA has been exploring several projects aimed at improving electronic recordkeeping, ensuring access to government information, and helping Federal agencies reduce the burden of records management on the end user.  In this presentation, Meg Phillips - CRM, NARA's External Affairs Liaison and the Project Lead for NARA's Automated Electronic Records Management Project (Directive A3.1), will provide a latest update on work to date and plans to help the Federal government automate more of its information governance processes by 2020. In this session, you will learn about:  

  • A progress report on NARA's Automated Electronic Records Management (ERM) Program
  • Planned initiatives to make automated tools more affordable and accessible to Federal agencies
  • Use of open source tools available for electronic records management
