NAGARA Program Excellence Award 2023

The National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators (NAGARA) Program Excellence Award recognizes  outstanding, innovative and successful government archives and records management programs or initiatives. This award was established to recognize a collaborative team or government program for the development and implementation of a creative product or program that enhances the goals of government records management and preservation.


The 2023 award went to the University of Virginia Records and Information Management Office. Since its founding in 2009, RIM has become an established, well-connected member of the University of Virginia - as evidenced by the multiple letters of support received from a variety of departments across grounds. The team shows their dedication to their partners by working side-by-side with departments - often showing up in work clothes and ready to get dusty! These efforts, along with their education initiatives and innovative use of technologies, brought UVA into compliance with the Virginia Public Records Act. Their strategies are a model for the NAGARA and broader information management community.
