Tune in monthly for a curated collection of articles we found interesting on a broad range of topics; some which are directly related to records management and others which might share common themes.
No, we didn’t write these articles —hence the name of this series, “Off the Record”— but fortunately, we didn’t need to in order to share the knowledge with our subscribers.
Let us know in the comments below what topics you are interested in learning more about!
“Neglect data management at your peril” — Moneyweb
“EPA Under Fire for Slow Rolling Release of Public Records” — Government Executive
Public information acts, including the Freedom of Information Act on the federal level, have a time frame for turning over responsive information for a reason. An array of open government groups have complained about the Environmental Protection Agency for their “selectively slow-walked responses to public requests for documents under the Freedom of Information Act”. While your government may not be under such insistent and watchful eyes as federal agencies, heeding the need to be timely and transparent with your information releases can only benefit your government entity.
