Helping you navigate the digital transformation journey

What is M-23-07 (formerly M-19-21) compliance, and how do I plan for it?
With the Office of Management and Budget’s M-23-07 deadline rapidly approaching, you need an experienced partner that can help accelerate your digital transformation journey. M-23-07 specifically describes the steps you must take to meet the goal of transitioning business processes and recordkeeping to a fully electronic environment by June 30, 2024. If that sounds like a monumental task, you’re not alone. Here’s more information—and how we can help.
How can I effectively manage the growing volumes and variety of data?
In order to improve citizen services through secure, modernized solutions, you must learn to navigate your information lifecycle. A big part of that process is utilizing a secure storage option, whether digital or physical. In addition to improved discovery and access to records to better serve your mission, you’ll also free up valuable office real estate.
Can you help me establish and apply consistent records management policies?
From topping security and compliance standards with NARA-approved storage to destroying unnecessary paper and IT assets safely and cost-effectively, we have the services and solutions to meet your needs.

How is NARA-compliant records storage beneficial?

NARA storage is beneficial for permanent pre-accessioned records that have a short retention period before transition. NARA storage also supports specialized situations where unique NARA records analysis services are required.

Free-up valuable real estate and staff by moving boxes and files to an Iron Mountain NARA-compliant facility—without sacrificing visibility to your most valuable information assets. Contact sales to get started.

Why would I want to store records onsite?
Records and information are the lifeblood of any agency. Managing and protecting these valuable assets is mission-critical. Onsite storage offers absolute, strict control over the use and access of specific sets of records. This addresses situations when records are legally required to stay on agency grounds or needed on a frequent basis by specific agency staff at particular locations.
When should I consider using a third-party vendor for storage services?
Partnering with a third-party storage vendor offers localized storage options when specific geographies are needed. They also provide custom service levels for specialized vital records collections, in addition to support for temporary records with legally mandated retention periods and lower activity levels.
How does digitization support my transition from legacy physical records processes to electronic workflows?
Digital transformation enables automation and data analytics through digital conversation and metadata capture. This means easier and quicker access to records that need to be made accessible to citizens, employees, or other agencies.
Why is proper disposition important to the M-23-07 process?
Disposition ensures that your data is defensibly disposed of and in compliance with your current retention schedule. It also eliminates storage needs for previously digitized physical records.
How are Iron Mountain’s storage facilities different?
Our 13 federal records storage facilities meet NARA’s stringent standards, 36 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 1234. All of our facilities are designed by a dedicated real estate and engineering team, with expert guidance from federal compliance officers, NARA, and security professionals.We adhere to the strictest government security requirements, conducting rigorous background checks, employee screenings, and formalized training to ensure that the highest standards of security are met and maintained.
