Section A: Negotiate Submission Agreement
During this Part, the Archive assesses if it can accession, manage, and preserve the records it should accession in its Preservation System, either on its own, or with help from the Producer or a third party. This assessment is based on the information collected in the previous parts, including Assess Record Types, Assess Formats, Assess Identifier Rules, Assess Copyright, Assess Access Rights, and Assess Recordkeeping System. The Archive must determine if its existing resources for preservation formats, record types, identifier rules, creator records, security procedures, and system capabilities meets the needs of the records identified in Part A3. The resulting feasibility report should present a gap analysis if the Resources do not reflect the continuing value of any records assessed in A3. The Archive must then determine if it should modify or add to its Resources to meet those assessments or if it should reject or modify the scope of the records involved in the Ingest Project.
