Archive and Records Management Services Quality Improvement Framework (ARMS)

*** The ARMS tool is temporarily unavailable and we will provide an update as soon as it is accessible. If you have any questions please email us. ***

The ARMS framework is a service improvement tool that can provide you with the support necessary to focus on key outcomes and performance indicators right across the full range of archives and records management services. It is flexible and allows the user to choose the service area/s of immediate importance to the organisation.

Below you will find some more information about self-evaluation and useful guidance to support you. This includes useful guidance on mapping ARMS to PRSA Records Management Plan, the Archives Accreditation Standard and to the Scottish Government National Outcomes.

The toolkit is also available as a pdf, please contact us for more information.
