Civil service resumes e-documentation

04 September 2013, 08:39Emeka Adebanji

Abuja - The office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation has begun implementing the Electronic Document Management System (EMDS) which aims to digitise all records in the Federal Service.

The Head of the Civil of the Federation, Alhaji Bukar Goni Aji, said the records' digitization was expected to result in increased productivity through faster document exchange between offices and the integration to a workflow system that reduced business processes.

He disclosed this when he led a team comprising Permanent Secretaries, Development Partners and Directors in his Office to the National Records Centre in Karu, Abuja to inspect the on-going rehabilitation of the facility.

He highlighted the importance of the facility.

"This centre is very critical to our national history and development. Here, we have records that date back to the colonial era and we have the duty to ensure that they are adequately preserved," Aji said.

He expressed regret that the national records centre had suffered neglect in the past and said that with the ongoing rehabilitation efforts, a more strategic and modernized one would emerge.

Aji commended members of the committee that implemented the rehabilitation of the centre.

He said the next step was to ensure adequate training in modern records management for staff the centre.

Aji urged the development partners to consider capacity building as an area that required immediate attention.
