The National Archives and Record Administration (NARA) with insight from GSA is working to develop two draft documents to create efficiencies in records management acquisition and they need your input.

The program is the Federal Electronic Records Modernization Initiative (FERMI). FERMI is being developed to improve the way agencies acquire electronic Records Management (ERM) products and services. NARA is looking for your input on if the two documents as they will eventually serve as the tools agencies use to acquire ERM products and services.

The final versions are anticipated to be released in Spring of 2018

  1. Electronic Records Management Federal Integrated Business Framework (ERM-FIBF) – spreadsheet
  2. Use Cases For Electronic Messages (Word)

To provide feedback, complete a feedback form and email it to [email protected]. All comments and questions are due by February 23, 2018.

The outcome of the FIBF will likely affect SIN migrations and mergers on the GSA schedule, if not determine that ERM should be handled through a separate BPA or FSSI vehicle.

If you provide ERM to the Federal government, now is the time to influence the process and ensure it is compliant and meets the needs of government and industry.

Coley can help. Let us know if you have questions on how the ERM draft documents may affect the future of ERM acquisition.
