FCW Mandates Brief – Beyond Meeting the NARA Mandates

In 2012 the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued a directive that put agencies on a path to modernizing their management of electronic records, beginning with email. But with the first of the two NARA/OMB deadlines fast approaching at the end of 2016, it seems like the topic of modernizing records management has been surprisingly below the radar. 

The recent National Security Archive’s 2016 “Email Alert” finds 1 in 6 Federal agencies failed to file the mandatory self-assessment on email management and some agencies admitted they will miss the December 31, 2016 deadline. This is a clear indication that agencies are still looking for guidance on a multitude of questions.
