The Obama administration has laid out an ambitious roadmap for agencies to phase out the use of paper records by 2020 in favor of managing nearly all records electronically.

The directive, released the Office of Management and Budget and the National Archives and Records Administration, calls for exploring automated technologies to streamline the records-management process.
