PRMD Goal A3.1 Opportunities for Vendors

Opportunities for Vendors

The vendor and open source communities will be critical to the success of PRMD Goal A3.1. There will be many opportunities for vendors to engage with the Federal records and information management communities throughout the projects under this goal.

NARA and the ERM Working Group are currently planning four types of engagement, but additional events and methods of engagement will follow as further stages of the Managing Government Records Directive plan are developed.

As planning progresses, we will link to additional information from the Vendor Presentations page.

Vendor Presentations

Industry Day Event. NARA held an event for vendors on September 10, 2013 at which the Federal records management and IT community heard what NARA was hoping to achieve under the Managing Government Records Directive. This event also served as the kick off for the RFI.

RFI for vendor capability statements. NARA issued an RFI for short statements summarizing vendors’ ability to help agencies meet the goals of the Managing Government Records Directive. The statements were shared with the Federal records management and IT communities to support their planning to meet the goals of the Directive.

General input on Federal Information Strategy. NARA is continuing to seek advice from the private sector on ways to improve the Federal government’s ability to manage and provide access to information over the long term. This input should be submitted in the form of short white papers and can be sent to PRMD@nara.gov at any time with the subject line “A3.1 vision”.

More information on submitting general input is available here: Opportunities for Anyone Interested in a Long Term Federal Information Strategy.
