05 Jun What if Your Agency Still Needs to Maintain Analog Records?
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) will no longer accept analog records from federal agencies after December 31, 2022. Indeed, NARA is doing its best to go all-in on electronic records retention. It’s strategic plan for 2018-2022 includes digitizing “billions of pages of records we hold in analog formats [and keeping] pace with the continuous stream of new records we receive each year.”
In the long run, this digitization offers ample benefits to justify the effort, including cost savings, improved productivity, and easier and more effective records management. Nevertheless, it leaves agencies that need to maintain analog documents facing a significant challenge.
