How does BRM create a new archive database that we can trust?
As the records are received at BRM they are logged, bar coded and verified – often using imported and revised existing database information. Even if the data is limited to a box or file number, it is uploaded on to the See-It system within 48 hours for a client to view. The archive is quickly constructed to contain both verified and agreed records and records that are not verified or are unidentified. At this point the client may discover files that should have been destroyed, or duplicates, or otherwise incorrectly filed records. The result is normally a wholesale cleanup of the record archive and database. The proportion of records not verified normally proves to be less than 5%.
