SEC chooses Disclosure for information management

Disclosure, a unit of Primark, has been selected to provide records management services to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Disclosure will also operate the SEC's Public Reference Rooms in New York, Chicago and Washington DC.

Disclosure will use its imaging and indexing systems to process some 1.7 million document pages annually and convert them to electronic images. The images will be provided to the SEC for record retention purposes and will be stored in Disclosure's image repository, where commercial users of Disclosure's products can access the filings online. The transition is expected to be completed this summer.

Previously, the SEC used microfiche to archive data and to provide document viewing and printing capabilities in the Reference Rooms. Now, Reference Room patrons and nationwide SEC staff will be able to view, download and print filings online using Disclosure's GlobalAccess online delivery platform.
