Federal Specialist Outline

CRM/Federal Specialist

The ICRM Specialty Designation program allows for industry-specific standards and best practices to be documented and peer reviewed the same as the CRM process provides for global best practices in RIM.

The CRM/Federal Specialist is based on the collective body of knowledge represented by the United States (US) government laws and regulations as well as the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) guidelines and policies for record keeping program in Federal agencies. The CRM/Federal Specialist was developed by a team of recognized CRMs whose careers have included RIM programs of US government departments and agencies, US military and supporting contractors. The knowledge areas were defined in consultation with ICRM strategic partners.

The Body of Knowledge (BOK) outline has three major sections which align with the NARA Federal RIM Capability Maturity Model and is built on the knowledge necessary to operate and support RIM programs and the Department or Agency HQ level.
