MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY CONTACTS:Instructions and template for big bucket crosswalks
In the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Flexible Scheduling, NARA states that agencies must create a crosswalk when preparing records schedules with big bucket schedule items. We are now providing a crosswalk template and instructions(see the last link on the page) that agencies may use for this purpose. Agencies are not required to use the template, although it is recommended as it does include the minimum requirements identified in the FAQ.
If you have any questions, please contact your agency’s assigned appraisal archivist.
