Topics: Department of the Interior Records Management Repository


Welcome – Viv Hutchison & Madison Langseth


  • Department of the Interior Records Management Repository - Lynda Speck and Jim Nagode, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation

    In October 2017, Reclamation implemented eERDMS as a centralized records and document management system. The eERDMS platform is the first records and document management cloud solution for a Department-level agency in the Federal Government.  After implementation, we gained basic records management of physical and electronic records functionality, ability in meeting the OMB 19-21 Directive for Managing Government Records goals email and permanent records in electronic format, transition to the Department Records Schedule, and direct access for FOIA personnel and the Solicitors Office to search and manage records responsive to Litigation Holds or requests.

    The presentation will cover how we've been able to best utilize the Enterprise Content System module within eERDMS and some lessons learned from our migration efforts.
