Committee finds ways to better keep e-records

An interagency working group has identified barriers that keep agencies from managing records effectively.

Nancy Allard, the National Archives and Records Administration's project manager, said the E-Records working group of the Interagency Committee on Government Information will shortly issue a report detailing the problems agencies are having with their records.

The working group found that agencies do not recognize that records management helps their business processes, do not see RM as a critical part of their mission, do not support records management by providing tools and training, and do not integrate IT and records management well.
