NARA developed the Automated Electronic Records Management Report/Planin response to Goal A3.1 of the Managing Government Records Directive.

NARA described the plan as a living document and created this website to share information about the plan ideas as they mature. NARA welcomes engagement by agencies and stakeholders on these ideas regarding automatic electronic records management.

The plan contained a framework of three areas - Governance, Procurement, and Technology - and listed several items under each area. To learn more about these ideas, please explore the available information below. NARA will provide updates and additional information as ideas are further identified and explored.
