On Wednesday, January 16, 2013, NARA will be hosting a free hour long presentation and discussion about the Presidential Records Management Directive. Preston Huff, Head of the Project Management Office (PMO) in the Office of the Chief Records Officer, will provide a high level overview of the goals set forth in the Managing Government Records Directive which was jointly issued by OMB and NARA last August.
The stated objectives of the Directive are to transition the Federal Government from an analog environment to a modern, electronic record keeping system by the end of the decade to ensure transparency, efficiency and accountability. Also the Directive aims to provide a foundation to ensure agencies can demonstrate compliance with Federal records management statutes and regulations. For more information about the Records Management Directive, check out this blog post from August.
There are a limited number of seats available for this presentation. To register, please visit http://nara.ilinc.com/public. This webinar is a part of a series of free Webinars that NARA is offering to help Federal agencies meet the challenges of a complex and evolving records management environment.
