The Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) is inviting proposals for a records management consultant to review its existing information management practices and to develop a records management process and implementation plan which incorporates best practices. The project would encompass CRKN’s corporate records (board and committee documents, license agreements and contracts, policies and procedures, employee and payroll records, financial records, email and email archives, and project files). While the majority of CRKN’s records are electronic and predominantly in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint) and PDF formats, there is a small assortment of paper documents, historical and ancillary records to be considered at both of CRKN’s Ottawa offices. CRKN employs a variety of file storage and collaboration tools. The successful proponent will make recommendations on best practice for storage and retention of active and final documents and files.
Interested consultants are invited to submit clarifying questions by email to aid in the development of their proposal.
Please submit questions and final proposals by email to Ken Blonsk: firstname.lastname@example.org , Director of Operations, by 5 pm E.T. on September 30, 2020.
