Email Management

Federal agencies are required to manage their email records in accordance with the Federal Records Act and 36 CFR Chapter XII Sub-chapter B.

With the issuance of the Managing Government Records Directive (M-12-18), Goal 1.2, agencies are required to manage both permanent and temporary email records in an accessible electronic format by December 31, 2016. NARA's Capstone Approach and GRS 6.1 provide one way in which Federal agencies can meet these requirements. To find additional information on how individual agencies are managing email please go to NARA's Agency Email Management web page.
