Models for Action: Practical Approaches to Electronic Records Management & Preservation Project Report 98-1 Models for Action Project: Developing Practical Approaches to Electronic Records Management and Preservation This material is based upon work supported in part by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission under Grant No Center for Technology in Government University at Albany / SUNY ª 1998 Center for Technology in Government The Center grants permission to reprint this document provided that it is printed in its entirety Records Management and Archival Theory and Practice Business Process Improvement/ Reengineering Methodologies System Development Methods Functional Requirements to Ensure the Creation, Maintenance, and Preservation of Electronic Records Draft Records Requirements Analysis and Implementation Tool Application of Draft RRAIT in: 1.

System migration 3. Technology standards: a. Meta data requirements b. Industry standards c. Jurisdictional standards Records Requirement Implementation Component For each of the identified RM Requirements: Can it be addressed through technology? Management and Policy Strategies If yes... If no... a. will policies need to be developed or changed? b. what sorts of management practices will be required? c. what policies and management strategies will support the requirements? Acceptance of application Preliminary legal review if necessary Staff assignment if necessary Preliminary natural resource review Site visit Completeness review Application complete? no Send additional information request Receive additional information from applicant yes Legal review Project review process Natural resource review Staff approval? no yes Archive project record Issue permit no Permission to hold hearing? yes yes Agency approval? Issue denial order no Records Requirements Elicitation Component Business Process Level 1. What is the transaction to be automated (from the perspective of the customer) 2. What are the subtasks associated with the transaction?* 3. For each of the subtasks... Basis for the answer A. What is the purpose of the subtask? Is it intended to fulfill a legal, regulatory, or operational purpose? 1. Are there any when or how requirements for the transaction? (i.e. time clocks or standard professional techniques) B. What other documents or information need to be accessed during the sub-task? C. Is the record of the transaction created or modified? 1. If yes, at what point in the transaction is the record created or modified? 2. Who is authorized to change or modify the record? 3. What is the content of the record or the component of the record created or added during the subtask? a. Are there documents or information created by other systems that need to be integrated into the record? b. Is there any information about the component of the record that needs to be collected and maintained? c. Are there any proofs of authenticity associated with the content created or modified during the sub-task? Legal Regulatory Best Practices Agency policies & practices *A sub-task starts a process and ends with a decision point or completes the transaction. Records Requirements Eliciation Component Record Level 1. What are the current components of a complete or final record of the transaction? 2. What are the minimal components to provide evidence of the transaction? (If you went to court, what would be the minimum information that you would need?) 3. Are there any laws, regs, or professional best practices that specify the structure (including medium, format, relationships) of the record of the transaction or any of its components? 4. What information needs to be created to control, manage, and access the record throughout its life-cycle? (What information about the record do you need e.g. who created it etc.) 5. For each of the components of the record, what information is essential to access, verify the authenticity, interpret the contents etc. 6. During what other Agency business processes might you have to access this record? A. For each of the business processes, what components of the record need to be accessed? business processes,secondary uses, what are the most efficient/effective ways of accessing the records (i.e. indexing)?* 7. Who are the external secondary users of the record? A. What components of the record do external secondary users require? B. For each of these secondary uses, what are the most efficient/effective ways of accessing components of the records (I.e. indexing)? C. How will the record be reproduced to meet the needs of internal and external secondary users? D. What are the rules, laws, and regs that restrict or open access to these records to external users? E. If these records are covered by FOIL: For those components of the record that the Agency wishes to restrict access to, what category of exemption does the component fall under? For each of the components, what format are they currently in (e.g. GIS, database, WP, paper- forms narrative maps) and how will they be reproduced for distribution? 8. What is the record disposition plan? 9. Who is responsible for authorizing the disposition of records? 10. Who is responsible for authorizing the development or changes to the records disposition plan? * Identify the business process that requires the most robust access and then determine if the other processes require additional access methods Records Requirements Elicitation Component System Level How will the system accommodate the required integration of records from other systems? What other systems might these records be migrated to? What is your systems migration plan? For each of the technologies being used to support the business process: What are the metadata requirements? What are the industry standards? What are the jurisdictional standards? Records Requirement Implementation Component (RRIC) For each of the identified records management requirements: Can it be addressed through technology? If yes... will policies need to be developed or changed? what sorts of management practices will be required? If no, What policies and management strategies will support the requirements?
