    The area-spanning utilization of the electronic record system in Austrian Federal Administration also requires professional archiving. In accordance with the Law on Federal Archiving, the Austrian State Archives are not only responsible for the corresponding selection, addition and storage of the electronic original, but also for long-term (=permanent) readability of data. This is achieved by the installation of a storage system at two sites as well as by software based on the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) reference model. In the sense of cost-efficiency, the Federal Chancellery has procured a general license. It allows all Austrian Federal Provinces, cities, communities and other governmental bodies to co-utilize this archive solution without individual tendering via their own tenants. The presentation will give an overview of the project. The requirements, the hard- and software solution and the main standards like OAIS, PREMIS and others will be covered.
