Now Is The Time To Digitize Your Documents
The requirement for federal government agencies, departments, and offices in Washington, DC to scan their critical documents has never been more urgent than it is now. In 2018, the then-President issued a report called Delivering Government Solutions in the 21st Century. This white paper detailed a wide-ranging plan to streamline the federal government, identify essential operations, bolster efficiency, and restructure or get rid of certain federal departments. Many of these plans were never taken up, but one that was has far-reaching consequences for federal goverment offices and their document management: as of December 31, 2022, all federal government business processes and records must be scanned, 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 breaks down document scanning requirements, best practices, and a roadmap to successfully implement a paperless ecosystem.
While there was about a four-year gap between the release of this new policy and the deadline for its implementation, many government agencies and offices in Washington are still flailing to make sure they meet the order's guidelines. Many government agencies or offices had not updated their document systems in decades, used outdated software, or simply pressed on believing that paper records would always be used. However, there are several reasons why the federal government adopted this new policy: it improves accessibility for end-users, guarantees data will be secure into the future, heavily reduces data liability, and saves the government millions of dollars spent on storage costs.
