MOTC, NAP train employees on BRAM

To improve efficiency and to ensure regulatory compliance of access to accurate information in a timely and cost-effective manner, The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC), through the National Archives of the Philippines (NAP), conducted a Virtual Training on Basic Records and Archives Management (BRAM) for forty-five employees of the ministry, via Zoom on May 19-20, 2022.

This course is designed for records custodians/records keepers whose responsibilities include the Management of Records in an office environment from the creation until their final disposition. Every employee must know why record management matters to them and why it is essential for the organization.

This two-day training provides a basic overview of records management technologies, terminologies, concepts, rules and regulations, and procedures.

Moreover, this further aims to let the participants understand and apply the concept and principles of the Records and Archives Management Program (RAMP); appreciate the life-cycle of records management; develop a file classification guide or scheme based on its organization and functions for a uniform filing system (Functional Subject Alphabetic Classification System (FSACS); discuss the different values attached to records, its retention period and disposal; and to protect and secure public records in its custody.

As turnabouts, reduction of paperwork and a unified, well-structured, and comprehensive records management system that details the convenient access of data whenever you need them will be available to promote better workflows, boosts the organization’s ability to handle business, and ensure efficient service delivery.
