MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY CONTACTS: Annual Records Management Reporting Period
The annual records management reporting period will soon be open. This year’s reporting period will be from November 16, 2015 to January 29, 2016. Agencies will be receiving additional communications with full details and instructions from our office.
This year, we will ask agencies to report on the following:
1. Records Management Self-Assessment (RMSA): The survey tool information for the RMSA will be sent to Agency Records Officers prior to the beginning of the reporting period. Agencies will have access to an individualized report of their results after completing the survey. We will prepare and publish a report later in FY 2016. Questions about the RMSA may be sent to email@example.com.
2. Senior Agency Official (SAO) for Records Management annual report: This report measures progress towards the goals or requirements in the Managing Government Records Directive and other related records management initiatives. SAOs will receive instructions and the template for the report prior to the beginning of the reporting period. SAOs are listed here. If agencies need to designate an SAO or make changes to this list, they may send a notification to firstname.lastname@example.org .
