Deputy Martin Cullen Deputy Martin Cullen
Deputy Martin Cullen: The Document, Record and Information Management (DRIM) programme is a key part of my Department’s Modernisation Action Plan.
The Department’s aim is have all documents, records and information easily accessible, usable and managed in a manner that satisfies all stakeholders. The intention is to eliminate paper, in so far as is possible, from both the claim and administrative processes and to capture, store, retrieve and process all files, records, etc. in electronic form and thus to transform radically the way the business of the Department is carried out.
The DRIM programme when implemented will result in significant benefits including a reduction in the level of printed correspondence, communications, reports and other documents.
