Memorandum To Federal Records Management Contacts: General Records Schedules (GRS) Status Update, August 2021

This notice is to inform agencies that the GRS Status Update page has been updated. 

We recently sent a notice in AC 29.2021 that we would be adding new items to GRS 2.7, Employee Health & Safety Records, for vaccine attestation and testing records. We expect that these additions, as well as the other General Records Schedules that are ready for issuance, will be transmitted before the end of the calendar year.

Work on GRS 4.5, Digitizing Records, GRS 5.2 Transitory and Intermediary Records, and other additions and revisions to GRS 2.7, are still in progress. We are also continuing to work on revisions to ensure all GRS authorities are machine implementable. We expect issuance of these schedules sometime in 2022.

No agency action is required at this time. If you have any questions or comments about these schedules or any other GRS questions, please email GRS_Team@nara.gov
