Kodak Alaris can help you procure and deploy FADGI-compliant scanners ahead of the December 31, 2022 deadline.
Document scanners from Kodak Alaris, widely regarded as the gold standard for image quality and accurate data extraction, now support the standards and requirements of the Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI).
The Library of Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) published these guidelines to ensure uniform quality for all records maintained by participating agencies and to set standards and benchmarks for manufacturers that wish to serve these agencies.
The objective is to digitize all existing paper records (and other analog media) and require all new incoming records to be digital, ensuring compliance with the federal mandate known as M-19-21. Such an immense and varied effort requires the establishment of quality standards to be successful and sustainable.
Kodak Alaris provides GSA-approved scanners that make it easy to comply with this mandate and ensure that your digital submissions to government agencies meet FADGI 3-star requirements.
As a six-time winner of the Buyer’s Lab Scanner Line of the Year award, Kodak Alaris is proud to lead the scanner industry in terms of image quality, highly accurate data extraction, and successful process automation. Now we are leading organizations forward with our FADGI solutions, making it easy to prepare systems and workflows for this important transition.
Any organization that interacts with the Library of Congress and National Archives administration will need all digital records submissions to meet FADGI 3-star requirements by the December 31, 2022 deadline. It’s likely that these digital standards will extend to all federal agencies over time.
To simplify FADGI compliance for you, we offer the Kodak i5250 and Kodak i5850 FADGI-compliant scanner bundles. These scanners deliver the specific image quality output required to comply with FADGI requirements and the M-19-21 mandate. You can rest assured that any digital submissions to NARA, the Library of Congress, and other government agencies will be fully compliant with these new mandates.
