My thanks to the list for the wonderful responses I have received to the records vs documents question. I must admit that I am somewhat surprised that we (Records Managers/ARMA) have not created a standard definition to supply to other organizations with an interest in Records Management - such as ISO. To my mind, this just makes good business sense.
So often in the business world, the Records Manager is called in to a project in the 8th or 9th inning, usually when records difficulties are already occurring. It would be nice if we, as an international organization, were a tad more proactive at the 20,000 foot level rather than leaving those in the field to create patchwork solutions. That being said, I have received great comments from the list that I will certainly be able to forward on to our auditors. This list can always be counted on to supply knowledgeable information to those who need it. Thank you again.
