Technology facilitates compliance with Ontario records management provisions.

An increasing number of municipalities across Ontario are rethinking the way they manage records and provide access to information. Consistent with Ontario’s Access and Privacy Laws, timely access to information is a fundamental right, a right that is not easily fulfilled without proper records management practices in place.

In order to fulfill that right, municipalities lean on provisions such as The Ontario Municipal Records Management System (TOMRMS) for guidance on how to classify records and implement retention periods in a consistent fashion. Electronic Records and Document Management Systems such as SIRE Technologies comply with TOMRMS standards by offering a highly configurable way to manage paper and electronic records, providing permission-based access to information online, and promoting government transparency.

By combining modern records management features with a robust document management backend, SIRE is able to provide additional functionality such as a comprehensive search engine, audit trails and version controls, annotations, email notifications, and detailed permission settings to control access and ensure confidentiality of sensitive information. Additionally, SIRE can interface with a multitude of applications such as Microsoft Office, and can be configured to archive emails directly from the email provider to make efficient records management even simpler.

The SIRE software provides all this functionality out of the box, but is also configurable enough to meet the specific needs of any municipal corporation. Users of the software have seen a tremendous decrease in turnaround time for FOI requests, enhanced document security, and increased citizen involvement in their government.
