MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY CONTACTS: Release of NARA Bulletin 2018-01: Updating NARA Bulletin 2014-04, Format Guidance for the Transfer of Permanent Electronic Records
NARA is releasing a new Bulletin: NARA Bulletin 2018-01 . The purpose of this administrative bulletin is to make some minor updates to Bulletin 2014-04 , Format Guidance for the Transfer of Permanent Electronic Records. The updates were needed because the original language prevented us from adding new categories of formats to the transfer format tables contained in the bulletin appendix. These changes should make it easier for NARA to make future updates to the format tables to reflect changes in usage and technology.
