Mandate Chief Records Officer for each agency

Like what was done for FOIA, issue a directive for each agency requiring them to appoint a Chief Records Officer who is a peer of the CIO. This must be a full time position. This will help significantly to ensure that records management issues are considered when deploying new electronic systems.


This position should require an individual who has the following skills:

Records Management

Information Technology

Legal (E-Discovery)

Financial (Budgeting and Funding)
