A recent post from ARMA espouses the importance of the U.S. federal agencies properly addressing records and information governance rules concerns earlier in the development process. As we've written before, a proactive approach to information governance is critical. ARMA International President Peter Kurilecz wrote a letter in fact, to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB). This was in response to proposed revisions to the government's rules concerning information governance rules.
An excerpt from the letter reads: "RIM has a very important role to play in helping agencies impose discipline and holistic information governance within agency information resources in order to ensure transparency, accountability, and accessibility, and to ultimately preserve government records and our national heritage." This statement helps to clarify ARMA's stance on the necessity of proper information governance rules within all areas of the federal government.
Additionally, President Kurilecz proposed the following 9 recommendations to strengthening section 5 of Circular No. A-130:
The OMB is now taking these and all recommendations under consideration and will revise the policy as they deem necessary.
