New GSA Records Management Sin

Learn about the new GSA Records Management SIN updates affecting contractors and government agencies from Blackfyre, a premier GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm.

Title : New GSA Records Management Sin

As Blackfyre, a premier GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm, we are keenly aware of the recent updates to the GSA Office Imaging and Document Solutions Schedule 36, specifically the refresh that redefined SIN 51 504 as Physical Records Management Solutions and introduced SIN 51 600 for Electronic Records Management. These changes are instrumental in better aligning the records management offerings under GSA Schedule 36 with the evolving needs of federal buyers. Here's a detailed look at the changes and how they affect contractors and government agencies.

Overview of GSA Schedule 36 Records Management Changes:

Physical Records Management Solutions SIN (51 504):

The existing SIN 51 504 for Records Management Services has been redefined to focus specifically on Physical Records Management Solutions. This shift reflects a more specialized approach to handling physical records, ensuring that contractors under this SIN are well-equipped to meet specific physical records management needs.

Electronic Records Management Solutions SIN (51 600):

A new SIN, 51 600 for Electronic Records Management (ERM) Solutions, has been created to encompass a broader range of electronic records management services. This SIN is designed to offer comprehensive solutions for the challenges posed by electronic records, including their movement, manipulation, archiving, security, and management.

Key Features of the Electronic Records Management Solutions SIN (51 600):

  • Comprehensive ERM Solutions: SIN 51 600 includes services and solutions that address the entire lifecycle of electronic records, from creation and maintenance to disposition. This includes services using both government and vendor equipment and facilities.
  • Vendor Certification Requirement: Companies offering ERM solutions must submit a Vendor Certification for Records Management Services Standards and meet applicable Universal Electronic Records Management Requirements. This ensures that only vendors capable of providing high-quality, compliant ERM solutions are included under this SIN.
  • 11 Elements Breakdown: The SIN will cover a wide array of electronic records types, broken down into 11 elements including desktop applications, social media, cloud services, digital media, databases, and more. This detailed categorization ensures that federal agencies can find specific solutions tailored to their unique ERM needs.
