Memorandum Circular No. 2104-01 or the Electronic Records Management Policy (ERMP), issued by the National Archives of the Philippines (NAP) on 21 April 2021 requires all government agencies to establish their own Electronic Records Management System (ERMS).
In line with this, the NAP conducted a meeting with its service provider for the development of the Electronic Records Management System (ERMS). Information on records management processes and workflows of the different Divisions were gathered.
The ERMP sets the standards for the management and preservation of electronic records. The policy provides guidelines for the government sector in the shift from traditional paper records management to an electronic regime. The ERMP also contains protocols for managing the creation, use, storage, disposition, and archiving of electronic records.
