MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY CONTACTS: Annual Records Management Requirements Reporting Period Now Open
Today we opened the 2014 Record Management Self-Assessment (RMSA) reporting period, which runs from October 15 to December 15, 2014.
Agency Record Officers and others officially assigned to respond to the 2014 RMSA should have received today a link to enter your agency's data. For security reasons, this link cannot be forwarded to other individuals, so it is imperative that we have the correct point-of-contact information for your agency. If you did not receive this link and think you should have or if you received the link and are no longer responsible for completing the RMSA for your agency, please contact email@example.com by November 1, 2014.
Attached are MS Word and fill-able PDF versions of the 2014 RMSA for your convenience to use while gathering information and compiling the official response. Please do not return either of these forms to us. Your agency's official response must be entered into the survey tool using the link described above.
In addition, this year the RMSA will ask if your agency has identified additional unscheduled records since the inventory submitted in 2013. If your agency has identified additional unscheduled records from what was reported last year, you should complete the attached spreadsheet and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will have until 11:59 p.m. EST Monday, December 15, 2014, to complete the self-assessment. We will be unable to accept submissions via the online system after this date.
A tip sheet is attached to answer common questions related to the questionnaire and survey tool. If you have any questions regarding the RMSA, please contact Casey.Coleman@nara.gov or email@example.com.
