Washington, DC…At a records management conference on May 8, 2007, the National Archives recognized five Federal agencies for their outstanding achievements in records management. Archivist Allen Weinstein presented Archivist Achievement Awards to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, the Government Accountability Office, the Department of Homeland Security-United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Department of the Navy, and the Small Business Administration.
The awards were given at the 19th Annual Records Administration Conference (RACO 2007). The theme of the conference was “RM and IT: Building the Digital Future,” and it focused on the latest tools, strategies and issues in Federal information and electronic records management. Hon.
