Does your current program need a review?
Records and Information Management (RIM) Programs and managed 'Line-of-Business' (LOB) enterprise platforms form the foundation of Information Governance.
Often, organizations grow organically, with unknown exponential grown to both their RIM needs and LOB systems. Conducting organization-wide reviews allow organizations to regain control of their records management.
The following components can support a legally compliant RIM Program:
- RIM Bylaw
- RIM Policy
- RIM Program Band Council Resolutions
- RIM Manual
- Classification Plan and Records Retention Schedule
- RIM Training Program
- Scanning Program
- Disposition Program
- Email Policy and Training Program
- BYOD, Social Media, Cloud and Acceptable Use Policy
- LGMA Manual Customization Projects
- First Nations Summit Records Management Customization Projects
- Standard Content Types List
- Standard Naming Conventions Guidelines
- Standard Acronym Lists
- Metadata Guidelines
- Workflow Reviews to identify 'records creation'
- Standardization of forms and templates
- Physical Record Inventories
- Paper and Electronic Declaration Review
- RIM Glossary and Concordance
- Permanent Retention and Archives Policy
Did you know that the purpose of a RIM Bylaw is to authorize the creation and maintenance of a RIM Manual. That the manual must be kept up to date and address actions like 'disposition' before the organization can legally dispose of records? Are you using a legally defensible Confidential Disposition Certificate? Do you attach your box lists?
