Complying with record retention rules and regulations is so difficult that the government even has trouble handling their records correctly.  The article “Records Management: Government Out of Compliance” describes how government agencies rate themselves regarding record management compliance, both paper and electronic records.  I find this situation very scary since we depend on government’s ability to produce any necessary documents we may need in our lives.  Also, how will we be able to keep these various agencies accountable  if we cannot look at their history.  I wonder how these federal agencies would rank on compliance if an outside agency did the evaluation?
