We are requesting comments on our draft Standard Data Elements as part of our Federal Electronic Records Modernization Initiative (FERMI). Through FERMI, we have been working to improve the way agencies acquire ERM services and solutions. The use cases are a part of the Electronic Records Management Federal Integrated Business Framework (ERM-FIBF) and can serve as a starting point for agencies when seeking to procure services or solutions to manage electronic records.
We developed the ERM-FIBF according to standards set out in the Federal Integrated Business Framework (FIBF) developed by GSA’s Office of Shared Solutions and Performance Improvement (OSSPI). The FIBF serves as a model to help the Federal government better coordinate and document common business needs, improve processes and performance, and drive economies of scale. With the development of the ERM-FIBF, NARA hopes to ensure records management requirements conform to the FIBF and are addressed in all Federal mission support functions.
The Standard Data Elements represent the minimum data elements needed for vendors and service providers to manage agency records. The Standard Data Elements are intended to cover all types of electronic records. We intend for agencies to use the Standard Data Elements as a starting point to add additional elements needed to manage records throughout the lifecycle.
We want to hear from you! We would like to receive feedback from a variety of stakeholders, so please share widely.
You can comment here or email email@example.com with any questions or comments for consideration by February 15, 2021. We will review all the comments we receive.
