Project Overview: Louisiana Secretary of State ERMS Business Requirements Project

Antares was contracted by the Louisiana Department of State’s (LDS) Information Technology team to develop the Business Requirements for a next generation Electronic Records Management System (ERMS).  The project involved an analysis and assessment of LDS records processes to provide recommendations for an implementation strategy, best practices and document the scope of the project.

 The Louisiana Secretary of State is required by statute to ensure the proper management and safeguard of public records and facilitating public access to those records. Most governmental agencies are conducting business electronically which means that an exponentially increasing number of records are being born digitally. The State desires to implement an Electronic Records Management System (ERMS) to accept/schedule, store, maintain, access and destroy electronic records according to archival principles.

Antares provided skilled resources to perform business requirements gathering of current software and business processes.  The project engagement included review of software programs, business processes and working interviews with designated business stakeholders as well as the preparation of the deliverables document.
