The National Archives and Records Administration has asked industry to supplyÂ technical information on tools built to capture, manage and preserve content from social media networks.
NARA said Wednesday in aÂ FedBizOpps notice it seeks commercial technology that can archive dataÂ on more than 120 social media blogs, accounts and channels as well as comply withÂ federal records management and electronic discovery laws.
The agency indicated the tool shouldÂ “provide 100 percent real-time capture for all posts and comments in context, including metadata such as platform type, creation timestamp and username.”
NARA is looking for technology that can alsoÂ work to manage old social media contentÂ andÂ filter out-of-policy feeds.
Interested vendorsÂ can submitÂ white papersÂ that detail their data archiving tools by March 2.
