MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY RECORDS OFFICERS: Annual Federal Agency Reporting Period Closes March 17, 2017

I would like to remind Federal agencies that this year’s annual reporting period ends March 17, 2017. Agencies are required to submit the annual Records Management Self-Assessment (RMSA) and a supplemental Federal Email Management Report to NARA via the disseminated survey tool. The Senior Agency Official for Records Management (SAORM) Report must be submitted separately using the Microsoft Word template emailed to SAORMs on January 9, 2017.

Agency Record Officers and others officially assigned to respond to the RMSA should have received the two links from the survey tool on January 9, 2017. If you have not received these two links, please contact rmselfassessment@nara.gov immediately.

To all agencies that have already submitted their annual reports, thank you!

As agencies submit their SAORM and Federal Email Management reports to NARA, we will regularly post them on our public website at:

https://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/email-management/email-management-reports-2016 and https://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/agency/sao-reporting-2016.html.

Following the close of the reporting period, NARA will also conduct an analysis of all reports received and provide various summary reports, which will also be posted on NARA’s records management website.

If you have any questions regarding the RMSA and/or the Federal Email Management Report, please contact rmselfassessment@nara.gov. If you have any questions regarding the SAORM report or other issues relating to SAORMs, please contact prmd@nara.gov.
