Reforming Records Management in the Federal Environment: a Partnership between NARA and Federal Agencies (Powerpoint)

Comma (2007), 2007, (3-4), 77

Abstract

The US National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) issued its ‘Strategic Directions for Federal Records Management’ in 2002 in response to the changing demands of managing records in the electronic environment and within the context of the requirements of the 2002 Electronic Government Act. To address these new challenges, and having identified the barriers to federal agencies managing their records effectively, NARA is working with the agencies in three specific areas: (1) advocacy and communication, (2) policy and guidance and (3) implementation and assurance. Within these areas NARA is (1) working to communicate the ‘right message to the right people’ and has introduced new training programmes aimed at different groups of RM stakeholders; (2) has revised or issued new guidance and regulations, especially for e-records management, in partnership with stakeholder groups and (3) through pilot projects, has developed new tools to help implementation and ensure accountability.
