- Assist state agencies in planning the archival management of electronic records.
- Examine and evaluate options for the protection, preservation and accessibility of electronic records of permanent historical value.
- Develop and periodically update procedures and a comprehensive plan for the management of electronic records of permanent historical value.
- Submit a report and draft plan by June 30, 1995 to the governor, the Legislature, the Division of Information Technology Services and the Council on Information Technology in the Department of Administration and update the plan annually thereafter until June 30, 1998.
