Today, electronic documents, files, and emails are the main form of communication within a government organization. These internal documents are classified as public records and must be properly saved and archived for legal compliance, as well as to comply with security measures and ensure government transparency. Under these measures, government organizations are required by law to provide documents, such as internal files and emails for review in a timely fashion.
Within the last ten years, there has been an increase in the volume of emails and electronic sharing of documents. This increase has added an additional burden on governments, when they are already struggling with limited resources due to budget cuts. As more regulations such as GLBA, HIPPA, USA PATROIT Act, and FIoA are being passed, government agencies are given an added responsibility and liability to manage storage requirements, email archiving, and eDiscovery. Yet the combination of increased sending, receiving, and retention of data can result in overwhelming storage volumes. Large storage volumes pose a constant risk to primary server functioning, resulting, quite often, in slow performance and system crashes, which slow work flow and eat up IT employees’ time.
Government organizations may also encounter similar situations to those faced by public schools:
(1) Requests under Open Meeting and Freedom of Information Act laws
(2) Emails containing offensive or sexual content that violates human resources policies
(3) Emails containing evidence of wrongdoing by an employee
In all these cases, it is important to retain emails, attachments, and other electronic records. Archiving emails and electronic files ensures that redeeming information can be accessed from an historical record in time to acquit a government agency of intentional wrongdoing, perhaps by locating the source of a problem. Likewise, retention of electronic emails and files can prove the innocence of a staff member in a case of an investigation or lawsuit.
Archiving email and electronic files government agencies prove their integrity and encourage accountability among staff members and employees. As corporate scandals have demonstrated, enforcing a retention policy amongst staff is just as important as developing the policy. Even government agencies have made the news for suspicious situations surrounding email use and retention. Currently, the United States White House is facing ongoing investigations into missing emails that, under the White House’s retention policy, should not have been deleted.
