FreeDoc® Consulting for Records Management

The Records Management Life Cycle

Records Management (RM) is a proven, common sense strategy to protect the digital enterprise and improve the digital business process.

For the record, “Records and information management is an enterprise business function.  It is devoted to standardizing those methods used to manage enterprise records and information.” 

Records Management is responsible for designing and managing the information life-cycle, from the creation of information to its disposition, from start to finish.

For those public agencies operating in the age of electronic information, having a sound RM strategy is as basic as organizing your refrigerator, arranging a work bench, or managing the timeline of an ultra-large construction project.  Without a RM strategy, an agency may experience spoilage, loss of production, and legal jeopardy.
