Abstract (Summary)

The main purpose of the research study was to determine how a recordkeeping system can be developed for a small nonprofit organization. The study utilized a case study approach to investigate the process of implementing a recordkeeping system through the application of the Designing and Implementing Recordkeeping Systems (DIRKS) methodology to a single small nonprofit organization. This methodology employs the collection of documentary sources and interviews as primary data collection methods. Products of the research include a list of recordkeeping requirements. Results from the study show that organizational culture is an important factor that has a direct effect on the process of implementing a recordkeeping system in a small nonprofit organization.
