A New Report on Government of Canada Electronic Recordkeeping Requirements; an Assessment

In a recent plenary presentation titled: Moving the Federal Information Management (IM) Agenda ForwardCorrine Charrette, Chief Information Officer Treasury Board Secretariat of Canada stressed the Government of Canada IM strategy is to ensure that “information is safeguarded as a public trust and managed as a strategic asset.” The Library and Archives Record Keeping Methodology provides the tools and processes necessary to identify value and control information resources of business value.

But what about an implementation methodology and best practices associated with the development of electronic record keeping systems? What electronic records management standards must an electronic records management solution support? What should the success metrics be in measuring outcomes arising from the implementation of an electronic records management solution?

Treasury Board Secretariat has made it clear in the Directive on Electronic Recordkeeping that Canada has adopted the International Council on Archives Module 2 requirements for EDRMS solutions. There you have it – all EDRMS solutions for GC must comply with the ICA Module 2 requirements.

To address these issues Bruce Miller the President and Founder of has just completed an authoritative report. The report is entitled “Government of Canada EDRMS Requirements – an Assessment”.  The report is a comprehensive assessment of the requirements from a vendor-neutral, independent expert point of view. It answers the following two questions:

1.       What are the absolute minimum requirements that I will need, and which ones can I defer?
2.       How do OpenText and Microsoft SharePoint comply with the requirements?

We are making RIMtech’s new report on GC RK Requirements available for download here.

Hope you will find this Report informative.
