New PRC e-mail retention policy in the works

...but it is confidential and attorney-client privileged until it is presented to the Public Regulation Commission next Tuesday.

By way of background, last summer I wrote about the fact that no one at the PRC was following an electronic public records policy of keeping e-mails to be archived.

The January 2009 policy calls for employees of the regulatory agency to sort their own e-mails and determine what is public, and then forward those public records to an address for retention.

That wasn't happening, and after I wrote about it, PRC officials said they would craft a new policy. A spokesman for the commission said the PRC's general counsel will talk to me about the policy, once it is presented to the commission.
