Citizens have oversight and responsibility for the long-term care and maintenance of the content. For all documents, preservation in a tamper-evident environment where any alteration of the content (either deliberate or accidental) is detected and repaired is important, but for government documents, this is essential.

Digital materials produced by government agencies that are at risk of being lost are preserved as part of the program. This network will also be used to act as a backup server in cases where the main server is unavailable. It will also act as a means of restoring lost data.
