Study takeaway

Perhaps the key takeaway from the study is that federal senior managers, including (maybe especially) chief information officers and other "C-suite" executives, need to provide more support for e-Discovery programs if their agencies' legal professionals are to deal effectively with the technical challenges posed by ESI.

Money, Money everywhere, but not a drop of common sense anywhere
As a legal document preparer (sometimes referred to as a paralegal), I have to shake my head at the sheer ineptitude of the federal government.  Not only is the NSA compiling an electronic dossier on every man, woman and child in the US, but they also have no effective way of extrapolating the data.  And now here we are scratching our heads when over 70% of federal legal counsel/staff admit in a survey that they are less than confident of the government's ability to process ESI.

e-discovery and archives
E-Discovery will likely grow even more challenging as the volume of archived data continues to mushroom. For an interesting perspective on this, read what Joel Westphal, Agency Records Officer for the Office of Personnel Management (and a member of the National Archives Federal Records Council) has to say about the era of big data and the need to find new ways to deal with it.
