An OMB Guide to Paper Cuts

The Government Paperwork Elimination Act requires agencies to be able

to conduct business with individuals and organizations and store records

To comply, some of the key steps agencies must take are:

* Be able to accept electronic documents and digital signatures.

* Assure the privacy of personal information.

* Provide electronic acknowledgment that electronic filings have been

successfully submitted.

* Develop reliable systems of electronic recordkeeping.

* Automate information processes where possible.
