Lessons Learned: Good RFPs & RFIs are Key to Successful RIM Implementations

Records managers and leaders are responsible and accountable for 'getting the job done' in their organizations - and in most cases - for procuring the right solutions to do the job! 

Presidential Directives and memoranda create obligations, complexities and expectations from which your comprehensive Records and Information Management (RIM) program requirements must emerge. Today, developing a solution to meet the goals of the NARA Maturity Model can be a challenge to even the most skilled records and information management professionals.  

Have you ever experienced a disconnect between your organization's business & process needs, and the tools and vendor selected?  Join Amina Elgouacem as she gives her straight-shooting "lessons learned" after successfully implementing one of the Federal Government's first automated end-to-end records management solutions. 

Learn how writing the Request for Proposal (RFP) or Request for Information (RFI) is the key to your successful Records and Information Management (RIM) Program.  Find out where your selection of the proper vendor(s) really begins.  Amina will also share some important tips about how vendors need to message their value to their customers!
