It can be a challenge for government agencies to collect electronic data in response to their litigation and investigation matters. The volume of electronic data, as well, as the number of custodians and the far-reaching locations of the custodians can present a challenge during the collection process.

Therefore, becoming educated about different collection protocols and tools and staying flexible during the collection phase is extremely beneficial. As with other phases of discovery, employ a team approach to share the tasking, document all key decisions and assumptions, and rely upon others such as IT, Records Management and Subject Matter Experts to point you in the right direction. Here are five questions regarding the collection process that may help you be more efficient in your collection efforts.
