Memorandum to Federal Records Management Contacts: September 18 Launch Date for Records Scheduling in ERA 2.0

We are pleased to announce that NARA’s Electronic Records Archives system (ERA 2.0) will be available for records scheduling on September 18, 2023

Since June, ERA 2.0 has been available for agencies to submit transfer requests. Now, the system will have full functionality for records scheduling. The majority of previous ERA data, including records schedules and transfer requests, has been migrated into the system. All previously existing user roles have also been migrated. 

We are also pleased to announce that ERA 2.0 training materials created specifically for agency users are now available. Please refer to these training materials as well as the Agency Checklist for ERA 2.0 Launch to prepare to work in the new system. If you need to create new accounts in ERA 2.0, you can use the ERA account request form. Additional resources to support ERA 2.0 have been published on our updated AC ERA webpage

Finally, ERA 2.0 provides the current status of all pending agency actions in user dashboards. Because this new feature displays all actions in real time, your assigned NARA appraisal archivist will no longer send separate monthly status reports to agency records officers.

If you have any technical issues or require system support as you begin work in ERA 2.0, please contact the ERA Help Desk at ERAHelp@nara.gov.
