NARA helps agencies get their electronic records in order
As agencies work to comply with the National Archives and Records Administration’s mandate that all records management be digital, NARA is looking to help them make the transition.
An industry day event, held Aug. 6, gave NARA officials a chance to detail the intricacies of the Federal Electronic Records Modernization Initiative (FERMI) and NARA’s strategic plan to “help agencies be fully electronic,” Lisa Haralampus, director of records management policy and outreach at NARA, said at the meeting.
Launched in 2015 and borne of the Automated Electronic Records Management (ERM) Plan, FERMI’s ultimate objective is for agencies to manage all permanent electronic records digitally by Dec. 31, 2019. That expands to include all records by Dec. 31, 2022.
