Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), one of the groups that has sued the White House over millions of "lost" e-mails, recently released a report -- "Record Chaos: The Deplorable State of Electronic Record Keeping in the Federal Government" -- concluding that the entire federal government is seriously mismanaging its electronic records. CREW's report says agencies continue to cling to outdated, inefficient, and ineffective paper recordkeeping systems. In its report, CREW recommends that Congress amend the Federal Records Act to require all agencies to implement electronic recordkeeping by a specific date. On April 15, lawmakers introduced the Electronic Communications Preservation Act, which would force the White House and federal agencies to implement modern e-records management systems for e-mails.
