It’s not every day that you get to meet with the Former Director of Modern Records at National Archives and Records Administration. But when you do, the topic of discussion is bound to drift toward the Federal Mandate for Electronic Records Management.
As you may recall, the Federal Mandate was issued in a memo from President Obama and ordered agency directors to ensure “the successful implementation of records management requirements,” allocate proper resources and put someone in charge of reviewing that requirements have been met.
And while a presidential mandate is nothing to ignore, getting government agencies to move quickly on an issue that has been debated for years is no small feat. We turned to Mike Miller, who now works as Practice Director for Records and Information Management at ARRAY Information Technology to shed some light on the issue of electronic records management.
