Records inventories, surveys, files management, and retention schedules
Records, regardless of format or media, are a valuable resource for your organization. And like all resources, they require effective management over time—from creation to maintenance to disposition. Our skilled records managers can work with you at any stage of the records life cycle. Whether you need statutory or regulatory compliance, easy information retrieval, or just a helping hand to dig out from a mountain of files, History Associates is your solution.
Our records managers possess a wide range of experience in solving problems for federal, state, and local government agencies, private companies, and nonprofit institutions. Big or small, complex or simple, analog or digital, History Associates will work with you to find an appropriate, cost-effective, and efficient solution tailored to fit your records management needs.
History Associates possesses the skills necessary to build a program that meets your organization’s requirements. Our records managers are experienced in conducting records surveys and inventories, developing retention schedules and file plans, and devising program policies and procedures. We can train your staff to implement these plans or perform the file maintenance for you. For dormant programs, we can update the records schedule, implement the schedule on the backlog, and get your program back on track.
We can perform systems analysis to identify inputs and outputs that require scheduling and work with your staff to identify vital records for inclusion in your continuity of operations (COOP) plan.
History Associates can supplement your existing staff on a regular or project basis, for an extended term, or on a tight deadline. We can even store your records in our secure, climate-controlled facility, freeing your space for more cost-effective use.
