Memorandum to Federal Agency Annual Reporting Contacts: Annual Federal Agency Records Management Reporting Tool Now Open.

Today marks the beginning of the 2022 Annual Federal Agency Records Management Reporting period.
As someone designated to respond to the 2022 Annual Federal Agency Records Management Reporting, you should have received two separate survey links from NARA@qualtrics-survey.com for the:

  • 2022 Records Management Self-Assessment (RMSA)
  • 2022 Federal Electronic Records and Email Management Maturity Model Report (FEREM) 

If you did not receive these survey links or if you received the links and are no longer responsible for completing the RMSA and/or FEREM for your agency, please contact rmselfassessment@nara.gov as soon as possible. 
For your convenience, the RMSA and FEREM questionnaires have been posted to our website for use in gathering information. Please do not return these forms to NARA as your response must be recorded in the survey tool. 

You have until 11:59 pm ET Friday, March 10, 2023, to complete the RMSA and the FEREM. We will be unable to accept submissions after this date. 

Your responses to the RMSA may be subject to public release pursuant to FOIA. However, we will not release responses that contain detailed descriptions of agency activities without consulting your agency. Your responses to the FEREM report will be publicly released on our website, so please ensure the data your agency provides is publicly releasable. 

As in previous years, we will be conducting a validation process. Your agency may be selected at random to provide additional documentation and/or take part in interviews to discuss your records management program activities.
If you have any questions regarding the RMSA and/or the FEREM, please contact rmselfassessment@nara.gov
