Here's ARMA's article entitled "E-Discovery in the Cloud = Fog?"

Under regulations issued by NARA, U.S. federal agencies are supposed to
address record-keeping requirements before acquiring any new IT system or
enhancing any existing system, and although they routinely fail to do so
with impunity, that does not make such behavior acceptable.  36 CFR
1234.10(d) http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/get-cfr.cgi?TITLE=36

As Brand suggested, it would be good if the eGov IG could help .gov agencies
understand how to manage and maintain records created in the cloud.  Failing
to do so will inevitably lead to waste, fraud, and abuse as well as
excessive costs for discovery in litigation.
