The Philadelphia Electronic Records Project (PERP) is a two-year, National Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC)-funded effort to promulgate standards and exercise control over electronic records and electronic record systems created by the City of Philadelphia. The project, currently funded for its first year, is in its initial phase.

The workings of the PERP is overseen by an Electronic Records Manager and a cooperative working group, the Electronic Records Group, that assists in accomplishing the multiple goals of the project.

During the course of this project, the Project Staff made numerous presentations before City agencies and professional organizations. The Department of Records received funds from the NHPRC for a three project phases. Final (or interim) reports are available for Phase I, Phase II and Phase III.
