MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY RECORDS OFFICERS: FAQs about Using GRS 20 to Schedule Electronic Systems

I am pleased to announce that NARA has issued a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about using GRS 20 to schedule electronic systems.

NARA recognizes that General Records Schedule (GRS) 20, Electronic Records, can be confusing. Efforts are underway to restructure and revise the GRS to address this and other issues. In the interim, these FAQs provide assistance to agencies about how to use the current GRS 20 to schedule electronic systems, including input records, electronic records and system master files, output records, system documentation, and system maintenance records.

The FAQs have been posted to our website at http://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/grs/faqs.html.

The GRS Team also invites you to attend a webinar about these FAQs on September 19 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. To register go to http://nara.ilinc.com/public and simply enter your name and email address.

If you have questions about these FAQs or about GRS 20 (http://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/grs/grs20.html) itself, please feel free to email the GRS Team at GRS_Team@nara.gov.
