MEMORANDUM TO FEDERAL AGENCY CONTACTS: GRS Transmittal 24
The Office of the Chief Records Officer is happy to announce the publication of GRS Transmittal 24. The transmittal includes GRS schedules that have previously been issued, including old GRS 1-27, as well as the new schedules first issues in GRS Transmittal 23. The newer schedules have not been revised and old schedules have been annotated to show superseded items.
This transmittal makes available five new General Records Schedules (GRS):
- GRS 2.5: Employee Separation Records
- GRS 2.8: Employee Ethics Records
- GRS 4.1: Records Management Records
- GRS 4.2: Information Access and Protection Records
- GRS 6.2: Federal Advisory Committee Records
Agency Records Officers must disseminate the new schedules within their agencies no later than February 2016.
Use of the new GRS is mandatory and applies retrospectively and day-forward for all described records. If your agency intends to use agency-specific schedule items instead any item in the newly issued schedules (see list above), you must inform GRS_Team@nara.gov by December 18, 2015. You will need to provide the agency-specific schedule and item numbers as well as the related GRS item (a template is available here). Agencies wishing to use agency-specific schedule items instead of any other GRS items must submit a new schedule requesting a deviation from the GRS
