Plenty has been written about the need to retain individual emails so that both regulatory and potential litigation activities can be supported and controlled. These activities are usually governed by a combination of internal email policies and record retention policies directing users on a variety of email-based rules that may include what not to include in an email, how to file and save an email for retention and how to maintain the privacy of the interaction with outside clients. The retention and privacy aspects of managing email are particularly needed in highly regulated industries, such as Financial Services, Healthcare and Insurance.
However, many of these same regulated industries have another challenge—the governance of all kinds of outside marketing communications, including, but not limited to, email. Many companies understand the implications of running afoul of the "Do Not Call" registry (though that may have seemed hard to believe during the run-up to the recent US presidential election) and have procedures in place to monitor outgoing marketing calls.

The records retention schedule’s daily use is in decline.
I don’t mean to say that your organization shouldn’t have one — far from it. Every organization should have a records retention schedule safely tucked away in the arms (arsenal?) of the Records and Information Management, Legal and Technology departments. However, Typical End User (TEU) doesn’t want it and won’t use it.
So, Records Manager, how will you respond? What’s in your wallet?

When was the last time a definition of records management left a person feeling inspired? August 24, 2012 just might be that time. A new memorandum issued by the US Federal Office of Management and Budget (OMB) provided further direction to federal agencies for managing government records.
According to the memo, we should recognize that: Records are the foundation of open government, supporting the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration. Well-managed records can be used to assess the impact of programs, to improve business processes, and to share knowledge across the Government.

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.

There is a sense of frustration in the records management profession. An informal show of hands in a session on professional education at the recent ARMA conference showed that most of the attendees had college or university degrees in library sciences or archival studies. Few had degrees in business or technology.
The problem? Records management in the 21st century is all about business and technology. Over the last generation a disconnect has developed between the skills developed and the skills needed to be a successful, strategic manager of corporate records. The self-described “control freaks” of the content management world are finding it difficult to flourish in the social, mobile, collaborative business of 2011.
Brian Hill, Principal Analyst with Forrester Research Inc., has recently completed a survey in conjunction with ARMA International. The results are eye-opening. Today's records manager often has little input or visibility into strategic planning. 43% of the records managers had no idea what their technology budgets are for next year, despite the fact that 53% of them expected to deploy RM software in 2012.
