Success Criteria for Managing Permanent Electronic Records

I am pleased to announce the publication of the Criteria for Successfully Managing Permanent Electronic Records. The guidance supports the Managing Government Records Directive (M-12-18), which states “By December 31, 2019, all permanent electronic records in Federal agencies will be managed electronically to the fullest extent possible for eventual transfer and accessioning by NARA in an electronic format.”

The guidance describes what agencies should consider from a high-level when managing their permanent electronic records. It includes operational activities, which describe practical “how to” instructions for accomplishing key tasks agencies must carry out as they move towards the 2019 target of managing all permanent electronic records in electronic format. The guidance also reinforces the value of NARA’s Universal Electronic Records Management (ERM) Requirements, and provides an ERM Maturity Model example question for agencies to preview how they will be measured.

A briefing on the success criteria will be provided during the upcoming BRIDG meeting.
