Memorandum to Federal Records Management Contacts: Deleting Draft Records Schedules from ERA 2.0

After October 1, 2024, all records schedules in the status “draft” that were created prior to October 1, 2021 will be deleted from ERA 2.0. Moving forward, NARA will delete draft records schedules that are more than three years old on an annual basis. 

Agencies are encouraged to review existing draft records schedules and take steps to finalize or delete them. We have created a job aid How to Locate Draft Records Schedules. We have also created the ERA 2.0 Schedule Data Entry Tool to help agencies draft schedules outside of the system.  

Please note that any draft records schedules created in ERA prior to October 1, 2020 were NOT migrated to ERA 2.0 (See AC 22. 2023).  If you have any questions, contact your assigned NARA appraiser
