The Archives and Records Administration, through the Indiana Electronic Records Program, is working to establish guidelines for State and local governments to aid in the implementation of effective electronic records management programs. The Indiana Electronic Records Policy will provide a framework that illustrates the contents of an effective program by seeking to ensure that governmental units create and manage trustworthy records that demonstrate four core attributes:

  • Authenticity
  • Reliability
  • Integrity
  • Useability

Agency E-Mail and Electronic Records Procedures

The former IARA policy on E-Mail, Policy 5-01, has been rescinded to be replaced by Policy 12-01, the Electronic Records Policy shown above.

Agencies are, however, encouraged to develop internal procedures regarding e-mail and other electronic records, to assist their employees in complying with the Indiana Electronic Records Policy. Those listed below are provided as examples for agencies who wish to create similar documents based on their own work processes.
