At DocPoint Solutions, we know how critical it is for you to meet the fast-approaching deadlines for M-19-21/M-23-07* compliance.

With the pending M-19-21/M-23-07 deadlines*, NARA will no longer accept transfers of permanent or temporary records in analog formats and will accept records only in electronic format and with appropriate metadata. To meet M-19-21/M-23-07* compliance requirements, federal agencies will be required to:

  • Manage all permanent electronic records in an electronic format, and all permanent records must also include appropriate metadata.
  • Manage all temporary records in an electronic format or store them in commercial records storage facilities.
  • Digitize permanent records in analog formats before transfer to NARA.

Working in partnership with our parent company, Quality Associates, Inc. (QAI), we created the most comprehensive Records Modernization Center in the industry. It provides a centralized web-based resource for educational content, NARA policies and peer-group discussions. Additionally, we implemented a series of live learning events featuring NARA officials along with leading data modernization and records management experts from various government agencies. Throughout 2020 and beyond, we are committed to driving knowledge-based content and dialogue that allow agency officials to share best practices/challenges and receive updates from NARA on new metadata and related guidelines while fostering an environment of collaboration for a 21st century digital government.

* M-23-07, issued 12/23/2022, is an update to M-19-21, which established several requirements to move Federal agencies to a fully electronic environment. Due to delays in the electronic records transition process during the COVID-19 pandemic, M-23-07 extends the original M-19-21 deadlines by 18 months and reaffirms the underlying goal of the transition to electronic records.
