CA Records Manager 5015.2-certified

Records Manager is the first product certified under the latest version of DOD 5015.2 standard

The Defense Department has certified CA's Records Manager application against version 3 of its 5015.2 standard for records management products. The software is the first to be certified against the updated standard, according to the company.

Records Manager automates common tasks related to the archiving of physical and electronic documents. It works with content management systems and offers the ability to schedule the archiving and disposal of documents, among other features.

Overseen by the Defense Department's Interoperability Test Command in Fort Huachuca, Ariz., 5015.2 is a set of baseline functions required for records management applications used by DOD. JITC tests and certifies software against the 5015.2 requirements and keeps a record of those applications that have passed muster. Although mandated for Defense systems, 5015.2 is becoming a de facto standard for other government agencies as well.

Version 3 of 5015.2, ratified last April added some new requirements. One was the ability to create alerts whenever any changes take place in the metadata fields of the documents. It also restricts the metadata access and requires the ability to routinely check the integrity of the data'that it hasn't been tampered with.
