For updates on records and information management, please participate in the PRMA Survey for New Seminar Topics.


Records and information management is one of the many management disciplines in an organization. Personnel and financial management are examples. Due to the demands for accurate, reliable and updated information needed for decision making process, the records manager now forms part of the management team in the organization.

The need to establish an efficient records and information management system to be able to retrieve records quickly is now the concern of every records manager. Records must be managed during their lifecycle – from creation to final disposition.

On the national level, the problem is compounded by the lack of policy guidelines and diveristy of practices utilized by different agencies. This problem can be fostered by an exchange of ideas that can be done best through the PRMA.


The PRMA is a professional organization that specializes in the sharing of knowledge about records and information management at the national and international levels.

It is registered with the Philippine Goverment Electronic Procurement System (PhilGEPS) as service provider in records and information management. It is essential that one knows what are the records management practices in other countries and PRMA can help in this regard.
