Records Management

Records Management is an increasingly important focus for government agencies. Starting from 2019, all government agencies in Singapore will have to be audited by the National Archives of Singapore (NAS) based on the IM4L guidelines. LAAS, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Library Board of Singapore (NLB), provides consultancy services to help agencies create consolidated file plans that adhere to the IM4L guidelines.

 

Through our methodology, we gain a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses, functions, and needs. We accomplish this through in-depth research and focus group discussions. It is then with a clear understanding of our clients that we are able to guide them and create coherent and intuitive file plans that their staff can work easily with.

 

Apart from consulting services, LAAS can also provide a File Plan Management System that helps to automate records submission and appraisal cycles. The system is able to keep track of various Records Retention Schedules and send out the necessary alerts to the staff involved.

 

LAAS has a good understanding of the latest IM4L requirements, and we are very glad to have had opportunities to apply that understanding to advise our satisfied clients. We look forward to helping your agency on its Records Management journey too.
