National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)

The goal of NARA’s Federal Electronic Records Modernization Initiative (FERMI) is to help federal agencies procure electronic records management solutions so they can meet the targets in M-19-21.

If your agency is struggling to let go of that last piece of paper, come hear how NARA is working to create a fully digital government by creating the Universal Electronic Records Management (ERM) Requirements and ERM standards that can be used by any agency. The presentation will discuss:

  • -- How NARA has worked with GSA to simplify the ERM solutions procurement process for agencies.
  • -- How NARA is working to integrate ERM into mission support functions and shared services so it is transparent to the end user.
  • -- Practical tools NARA has created to help simplify requirements and assess vendor ERM solutions.
