MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY CONTACTS: 2014 Annual Records Management Reporting Period Announced

We will soon open the annual records management reporting period. This year’s reporting period will be from October 15, 2014 to December 15, 2014. Agencies will receive additional communications from our office soon with full details and instructions.

This year, we will ask agencies to provide the following reporting:

1. Senior Agency Official (SAO) annual report: This report measures progress towards the goals or requirements in the Managing Government Records Directive. Agencies will receive instructions and the template for the report prior to the beginning of the reporting period. SAOs are listed at http://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/agency/sao-list.html. If agencies need to designate an SAO or make changes to this list, they may send us a notification at rm.communications@nara.gov. We will prepare a comprehensive report later in FY 2015 to summarize results.

2. 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. After we have assessed the data we will send agencies an individualized report of their results. We will also prepare and publish a comprehensive report later in FY 2015. If you have any questions about the RMSA, please contact rmselfassessment@nara.gov.

If you have any questions, please contact rm.communications@nara.gov.
