Microsoft has released a resource kit to manage records according to DoD standard check out the site and download the Office SharePoint Server 2007 DoD 5015.2 Resource Kit here.
Resource kit is available on Microsoft site.


Who should use this resource kit –organizations likely to enhance record management functionality with specific feature available in resource kit but not required running their system in a certified discipline NEVER used this product anyway.

Few listed features available in DoD 5015.2 Resource Kit-

Put multiple items on Hold in Sharepoint Record Center -once you put record on hold it will not go into disposition process and all expiration policies are suspended until HOLD removed.  So this feature available to select all records put them on hold.

Prevent document modification with WSS3.0 by the way this version is free so they can have RM feature – NOT to modify in WSS3.0

Another feature is – You can Create Document Library from a list item which is a handy feature.

Basically Microsoft has extended Sharepoint’s Record management features by just implementing add-on that is called DoD 5015.2- .
