Iron Mountain Federal Information Asset Framework

A Solid Roadmap to Meet the Directive Deadlines

To achieve compliance with the Presidential Directive and agency RM goals, Iron Mountain has developed The Federal Information Asset Framework. The framework delivers a clear roadmap to help agencies modernize records management, regardless of a record's format, location or the current status of an agency's RM efforts.

The Iron Mountain® Federal Information Asset Framework is closely aligned with primary requirements of the Presidential Directive, and is structured to help agencies achieve two primary objectives:

  • Organize their records to meet Directive deadlines (enabling them to take control of past and present records now)
  • Strategically migrate to digital state (thereby optimizing records management for the future

To learn more about the Framework, please view the video about how Iron Mountain can help you.
