WASHINGTON DC (2018) — In an effort to increase the access and availability of their records management platform within the US Federal Government, industry-leaders Feith Systems and Software, Inc. have signed on to the GSA’s popular new Schedule 36 (51 600) for Records Management solutions.

 

The General Services Administration’s updated Schedule 36 seeks to modernize procurement for electronic records management software.

As Feith is now the only Department of Defense 5015.02-certified records management system on Schedule 36, the move to adopt the new category was particularly important to departments and agencies dealing with classified records workloads.

The GSA began moving critical Electronic Records Management software and services under Schedule 36 at the end of 2017. As the Dec. 31st, 2019 deadline of the Managing Government Records Directive quickly approaches, this and other moves to highlight Electronic Records are imperative.

Further, establishing an electronic records management program becomes increasingly important as NARA announced intentions to stop accepting paper-based records in 2022.

At the request of several organizations in the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community and in an effort to simplify procurement of their software, Feith Systems has decided to adopt the new schedule, and finalized a move onto Schedule 36 as of November.

The new schedule provides vendor certification for most of the major areas of Records Management: desktop applications, electronic messages, social media, cloud, digital media, databases, shared drives, and engineering archives. With Feith’s unique ability to support all of these major areas, this was viewed by Feith executives as a strong argument for moving to the new schedule since it emphasizes Feith’s strength across records domains.

As Feith is now the only Department of Defense 5015.02-certified records management system on Schedule 36, the move to adopt the new category was particularly important to departments and agencies dealing with classified records workloads.
