The computerization of archives and records management processes dubbed National Archives and Records Management System (NARMS) by Ministry of Youth Sport and Culture, is said to be at phase one where it is piloted at the Office of the President and the Botswana National Archives and Records Management headquarters.

The system, which costs the government P32 million ($250M), is expected to be completed in September 2010.

By September 2010 phases one and two are expected to be completed. According to the Secure Data Project Manger, Mr Steve Parrymore, they will rollout the programme to other ministries and departments in the third and final phase.

The solution uses Trim Context Software developed by Tower Software, an Australian company.
