Now Is The Time To Digitize Your Documents
The need for federal government departments, offices, and agencies to scan their important documents has never been greater than it is today. In 2018, the then-President issued a report entitled Delivering Government Solutions in the 21st Century. This document outlined a wide-ranging plan to streamline the federal government, identify core competencies, boost efficiency, and eliminate or restructure certain federal departments. Many of these plans were never adopted, but one that was has far-reaching consequences for federal government offices and their document management: as of December 31, 2022, all federal government business processes and records must be digitized, moved to a paperless system, and given appropriate metadata. In fact, the National Archives and Records Administration will not accept any paper record following this date. Further guidance about this order's implementation was given in the Office of Management and Budget's Memorandum M-19-21, which details document scanning requirements, best practices, and a roadmap to successfully moving to a paperless environment.
While there was a roughly four-year interval between the announcement of this new policy and the deadline for its implementation, many government offices and agencies are still scrambling to make sure they meet the order's requirements. Many government offices or departments had not updated their document systems in years, used outdated software, or simply pressed on believing that paper records would always be used. However, there are multiple reasons why the federal government adopted this new policy: it improves accessibility for end-users, ensures data will be secure into the future, greatly reduces data liability, and saves the government millions of dollars spent on storage costs.
