Federal Records Management

Records Management Self-Assessment (RMSA)

Each year, Federal agencies are required to conduct a Records Management Self-Assessment (RMSA) and submit the findings to NARA. The goal of the self-assessments is to determine whether Federal agencies are compliant with statutory and regulatory records management requirements. 

NARA is committed to continuing to work with Federal agencies to strengthen their records management programs so these scores improve. We look forward to working with Congress, OMB, and the Federal agencies to improve records management performance across the Federal Government.
