Managing Government Records Workshop – Post Event Information/Presentations

Wednesday, May 6th at the Newseum – 8th floor Knight Conference Center – in Washington DC

To effectively implement a records management program, it is essential to securely capture, perfect, extract, and enrich information from a wide variety of sources. By performing this work at the point of origin, an agency can consistently automate the processes that categorize and classify the information in a standard way for eventual records handling. Intelligent capture can provide rich context for information processing which greatly enhances automation of vital records, reducing human input and minimizing errors.

The Clinton private email controversy has placed compliance with Federal Records Management regulations and policy under the microscope. This controversy comes 16 years after a GAO report alerted Congress by stating, “Records generated electronically, such as electronic mail (E-mail) messages, word processing documents, CD ROMs, and World Wide Web site pages, present an archival challenge for NARA and agencies because these technologies are new and changing very rapidly.”

To effectively implement a records management program, it is essential to securely capture, perfect, extract and enrich information from a wide variety of sources. By performing this work at the point of origin, an Agency can consistently automate the processes that categorize and classify the information in a standard way for eventual records handling. Intelligent capture can provide rich context for information processing which greatly enhances the automation of vital records, reducing human input and minimizing errors.

Six speakers shared their thoughts and insights on using technology to meet the challenges of the Presidential Directive. See below for more information on our speakers and their presentations.

Adoption and Use of Technology – Lessons Learned from Classification Management Download Presentation

Managing government records throughout the records lifecycle includes work at the back end to prepare those records for public release. As electronic records managers we are confronted with a very different kind of “big data” problem when millions of documents must be prepared for public release. Today’s research and tools are focused on finding needles in a haystack of government records. At the end of the lifecycle records custodians must make decisions based on the full content of each and every page of information that constitutes the haystack. This presentation will provide a very different perspective on managing electronic records.
