ETS MEDIA ADVISORY: Governor to mark Electronic Records Day by ‘eSigning’ proclamation

Posted on Oct 10, 2016 in Latest News

Gov. David Y. Ige will proclaim October 10, 2016, Electronic Records Day in Hawaii, electronically signing the ceremonial proclamation — a capability piloted by the governor’s office one year ago. It will be Hawaii’s first “paperless” proclamation by a governor.

What: Electronic Records Day Proclamation “eSigning”

This event will include an update on the rollout of electronic signature capability to departments statewide as part of the governor’s paperless initiative

When: MONDAY, Oct. 10, 2016 at 11:30 a.m.

Where: Governor’s Office, Ceremonial Room


  • Gov. David Y. Ige
  • Todd Nacapuy, State Chief Information Officer
  • Adam Jansen, State Archivist

Why: Gov. Ige and CIO Nacapuy will provide an update on the status of the state’s “eSign Service” electronic signature solution and its implementation to executive branch departments statewide. On Oct. 1, 2015, the Office of the Governor, with assistance from the Office of Enterprise Technology Services (ETS), piloted the use of eSign Service, processing all documents electronically to the extent possible. ETS has since begun expanded the service to departments statewide to increase government efficiency within the executive branch.

Electronic Records Day began as an initiative of the Council of State Archivists of the United States and today is observed nationally as an opportunity to raise awareness about the crucial roles electronic records play in our world.
