The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) faced specific challenges relating to very long-term digital preservation of records, and existing maturity models were not adequate to their requirements. In response to this, through a collaboration between the NDA and the Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC), the Rapid Assessment Model (RAM) was developed. The DPC is a membership organization based in the UK (but with an international outlook). RAM is a maturity model for digital preservation that is quick and easy to use and is firmly based on existing digital preservation good practice. It is applicable to any organisation with a need to look after digital information for the long term and allows organisations to establish where they are now and set goals for moving forward in digital preservation.
