Even the most vigilant observer of records management trends could be forgiven for not noticing, but over the last year or so, a revolution has come to Federal agency records management.
This revolution has been a long time coming and the seeds of change were probably first planted more than seven years ago with the Obama administration’s release of thePresidential Memorandum on Managing Government Records, as well as the resulting NARA/OMB joint memorandum M-12-18, which provided both a strategy and a set of agency deadlines for complying with the Presidential Memorandum.
The Universal Electronic Records Management Requirements
But despite the Presidential Memorandum and M-12-18, things really didn’t heat up until earlier this year with NARA’s somewhat surprising release of their Universal Electronic Records Management Requirements (UERM), a simplified, broadly defined set of high-level program and functional requirements for managing electronic records at all Federal agencies.
The UERM requirements…

Pam Doyle writes eloquently on Information Governance in this CMS Wire post from 3/29/16-
Until recent years, records management has been a behind-the-scenes operation. Today, driven by the plethora of highly visible data breaches, the exponential growth of digital data, regulatory demands and the need for digital transformation to support insight and intelligence, records management has been thrust into the spotlight.
This has not been simply a shift from the back office to the front office, but rather from the back office to the boardroom.
What were once considered records management activities are now part of a broader range of practices and strategies that have been labeled Information Governance (IG).
The IG Umbrella
Coalescing under the Information Governance umbrella are privacy, security, accessibility, lifecycle management, auditability, insight and much more. The information governance stakeholders start at the top with C-level executives and include line-of-business managers, information management professionals, legal, compliance and IT….

Australian data management firm Recall Holdings has bought Swiss document storage and management company Secur Archiv.
Recall (REC), which is subject to an ongoing $US3.4 billion ($A4.8 billion) takeover attempt by US logistics giant Iron Mountain, says the acquisition will add $US14 million in annualised revenue.
A few years ago I wrote a widely-read and somewhat controversial article explaining why I no longer supported the US DoD 5015.2 records management functional standard. Up to that point, I had spent most of my records management career working very closely with DoD-certified products and publicly criticizing the 5015.2 Standard would ultimately cost me a great deal of income (and more than a few professional relationships).
But in the end, I don’t regret doing it. As a career records management professional, I had simply gotten to the point that I could no longer sit quietly along the sidelines and watch a horribly constructed standard continue to wreak havoc across the information lifecycle management landscape. And while a few misguided vendors and consultants continue to push their decade-old products and services based on the DoD Standard model of records management, most fair minded industry professionals have since moved on…

A new product of the series of standards ISO 30300 is now available in ISO store. A preview is available in https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#iso:std:iso:30302:ed-1:v1:en.
ISO 30302:2015 is intended to be used by any organization implementing a MSR. The standard follows the same structure of ISO 30301 in order to facilitate the implementation of each requirement. It is organized to explain in each clause:
a) the activities necessary to meet the requirements of ISO 30301
b) inputs to the activities – these are the starting points and can be outputs from previous activities;
c) outputs of the activities – these are the results or deliverables on completion of the activities.
In following weeks we will sttart dicussions in this group to comment guidance provide for each clause in the standard. Hope to have feedback to share with the group.
