Electronic Records Strategy


In Spring 2002, The World Bank Group Archives launched the Electronic Records Strategy initiative to develop the conceptual framework, collaboration, standards, methodologies and technologies necessary to establish an electronic records management program at the World Bank Group.

The objective of the Electronic Records Strategy is the systematic, enterprise-wide management of electronic records according to international standards and best practice.

The Strategy is being developed by the Bank Group Archives under the direction of consultant Peter Van Garderen (Artefactual Systems Inc.) in collaboration with Archives and World Bank Information Solutions Group (ISG) staff.
