Records Management

Feith combines expert consultative services with our industry-leading software, RMA iQ, to deliver an automated and audit-ready records management program. This 360-degree solution guarantees maximum efficiency and full compliance with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) for your federal agency.

Automatically capture, secure, categorize, manage, and defensibly delete records

RMA iQ is a complete solution that addresses all phases of the records lifecycle, from capture through final disposition. The software offers a feature-rich interface and flexible deployment options that make it easy to use and administer.

Record Capture

RMA iQ automatically captures documents into the central repository as users create them. It uses synchronization and integration methods such as RESTful APIs to connect to and migrate documents and content from email, file shares, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, and Oracle databases.

Record Indexing

RMA iQ captures and ingests both the records and any metadata and index values held in organizational databases, file systems, legacy data stores, and custom repositories. Index values help the system find, organize, control, and workflow documents stored in the repository.

Manage & Control

RMA iQ helps to ensure that organizations comply with laws and regulations. The solution’s capabilities align with NARA’s Universal ERM lifecycle of electronic records management, including Capture, Maintenance and Use, Disposal, Transfer, Metadata, and Reporting.

Search & Retrieval

RMA iQ comes with tools to find and access records within the centralized repository.  Powerful search capabilities let users query by metadata, full-text, and use filters to narrow down results. Search results can also be controlled by user permissions, keeping records secure.

Categorize Records

In RMA iQ, categorization is based on the record’s structured (metadata) and unstructured (full-text) content. Within Feith’s RMA iQ solution, declaration and categorization may occur along a level-of-difficulty spectrum ranging from automatic to manual.

Records Schedules

RMA iQ enables organizations to upload their retention schedules and the NARA machine-readable Comprehensive Records Schedule. Once uploaded, staff can develop and tune the rules to determine the retention period per category.

Records Disposition

RMA iQ’s automated retention and disposition workflows ensure precise record management throughout their lifecycle, adhering to federal regulations. This setup streamlines retention, ensuring timely archiving or deletion, thus enhancing compliance and record-keeping efficiency.

Accountability

The work that records managers complete must be entirely defensible. There needs to be a visual tally of every action throughout the lifecycle of a record. At every step, RMA iQ ensures a detailed, complete, and secure audit trail.

"Feith’s Records Management platform has helped our Agency ensure compliance with NARA M-23-07 requirements. The enterprise-wide Records Management solution has reduced manual work, increased productivity, and provided valuable insights about the agency’s records program."

Feith for NARA Compliance

More than software

To achieve full compliance with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) you need the right software. But transitioning to that software often requires guidance at the program level. So, Feith complements RMA iQ with hands-on consultative services to remedy any underlying issues. Our approach begins with a thorough analysis of your agency’s records management practices. This includes a detailed gap assessment to identify both current and anticipated needs, pinpointing inefficiencies and bottlenecks that might hinder compliance and operational effectiveness. Then, Feith’s Records Management SME’s will work closely with your team to address those challenges. They will help fine-tune both RMA iQ and its implementation to optimize your records management processes and ensure that your agency is audit-ready.

All of our guidance is grounded in NARA’s principles, ensuring that our strategies are not only current but also forward-looking. Feith maintains a strong and active relationship with NARA, engaging in annual discussions with the NARA Policy Department and contributing to the Universal Electronic Records Management (UERM) Requirements. These continuous interactions help ensure that our consultative services and product development roadmap are closely aligned with federal records management missions. By doing so, we not only enhance our own offerings but also assist our agency partners in navigating the complex landscape of compliance, ultimately guiding them toward sustained success in records management.
