In the wake of the transition from paper-based to electronic processes, federal agencies are producing vast and rapidly growing volumes of electronic records. The difficulties of managing, preserving, and providing access to these records represent challenges for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) as the nation's recordkeeper and archivist. GAO was requested to (1) determine the status and adequacy of NARA's response to these challenges and (2) review NARA's efforts to acquire an advanced electronic records archiving system, which will be based on new technologies that are still the subject of research.
