Electronic Records Archives (ERA)

ERA Legacy Schedules

To create a Transfer Request in ERA for an imminent transfer to the National Archives, the user must select the disposition authority for the records. Many, but not all, approved disposition authorities have been entered into ERA and are available.  For those authorities not yet entered, NARA staff will add them to ERA upon request.

To request entry of a legacy disposition authority required for an imminent transfer to NARA:

  1. Email your request to: legacy.schedule@nara.gov. In the subject line of the email include the NARA Standard Form (SF) 115 number, item number(s) within the SF 115, and the date of the request. Note: We do not accept agency manual citations.
    Example: N1-064-08-010, Item 1, March 6, 2015
    Example: N1-064-12-002, Items 6-8, May 25, 2015
  2. You will receive an email confirming that your request was received. If you request up to 5 items, NARA staff will add the requested items within 2 business days of receipt of the request. If you request more than 5 authorities in one day, we will need more than 2 business days to fulfill your request. We will give you an estimate of how long it will take to enter them in the system.
  3. You will receive a message from legacy.schedule@nara.gov when the disposition authority is ready for use.
