Digital Solutions for Federal Government

Easily fulfill mandates for digitizing documents, data governance and security.

Federal government agencies are under pressure to digitize documents in alignment with regulatory and NARA standards, and time is of the essence. The M-19-21 mandate, designed to transition all agencies to fully digital records management, must be implemented by January 1, 2023.

This mandate from the U. S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) also specifies quality standards to improve both storage efficiency and document accuracy. In addition, all text-based document submissions to NARA or the Library of Congress must meet Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines.  

At the same time, agencies must implement requirements for the Foundations for the 2019 Evidence-Based Policymaking Act, a comprehensive data reform mandate. The Act requires federal agencies to develop and implement a robust data cataloging and governance strategy. It also stipulates guidelines for protecting and securing sensitive data.

Sounds complicated? Not with the help of DRS. We’ll scan and convert your documents into digital files that create an efficient workflow, enable ultimate searchability, and provide solutions that enhance productivity and automate retention schedules.

We Make Digitization Easy: Document Scanning Services

Government agencies store a wide variety of documents that span hundreds of years, and are often spread across locations, systems, and networks. These documents must be handled promptly, with transparency, and maximized data security.

We digitize, transform, and store critical documents. Our expert team, services and systems convert paper into digital assets in your office or in ours. Once your documents are scanned, your files are converted into easily accessed and searchable  files utilizing Optical Character Recognition to provide an accurate and efficient means to find the information needed.

Safe and Secure Document Management Services

It’s seamless. Securely share and manage your documents with our enterprise content management (ECM) tools that allow you to not only increase efficiencies and security and digitize workflows, but reduce compliance risk.

Implementing cloud-based records management software provides the perfect solution for government agencies. Our platform overcomes common issues with traditional document management, which makes  it easier to update or delete outdated or inaccurate government information.

Your workflow can impact security and compliance policies.
