compliance with #DoD 5015.02 certification

The 5015.02 standard defines the mandatory operational, legislative and
regulatory requirements that must be met by any records management application
products acquired by the DoD. With this certification, federal agencies can now
take advantage of Alfresco as a cost-effective alternative to traditional
records management solutions, which are typically priced on a per user basis. As
a result, the Alfresco Records Management Module enables simple and active
compliance across the entire enterprise.

Alfresco Records Management Module offers the following features and

* Simple Single Repository - All content captured, managed and controlled in a
single repository, enabling seamless integration with document and Web content
management tools. This avoids the need for content transfer with potential loss
of information and reduces the number of systems to administer;
* User-friendly Web-based Interface - Access to records management functionality
through a Web-based interface, enabling greater user adoption with secure access
from any location and no desktop installation; and,
* Easy Email Filing - Native support of IMAP protocol, enabling the filing of
emails from any email client, without the need to install a plugin. Alfresco
Records Management appears as a mail folder allowing users to simply file
records with drag and drop or automated by the use of email rules.

In addition, the module`s functionality also includes:

* Enhanced permissions model based on user capabilities and roles;
* Full record lifecycles based on disposal schedules;
* Support for complex transfers;
* Support for Vital Records and their reviews;
* Search, workflow and hold tools to comply with transparency and Freedom of
Information Act regulations;

* Saved searches to enhance user`s ability to find and manage records.

"Alfresco Records Management Module has the ability to transform the way in
which government and commercial organizations approach their governance,
retention and compliance strategies, as the open source pricing model will
significantly reduce the barrier to regulatory compliance," said John Newton,
CTOof Alfresco Software. "The DoD standard has become a benchmark for electronic
records management systems and this certification demonstrates our commitment to
delivering cost-effective technology to help organizations preserve official
records in accordance with the strict legal requirements needed to manage vital
company information."

Edition 3.2 before the end of the year.
