According to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), federal records include all recorded information made or received by a federal agency under federal law or in connection with public business.

This includes:

  • Audio and video recordings
  • Architectural drawings, maps, photos
  • All forms of electronic data (online records, email, instant messages, social media content and texts).

Due to the breadth and depth of regulatory compliance required for many government agencies, managing and storing paper documents can quickly become a serious problem.
