Recent Projects

Bureau of Trust Funds Administration: NARA worked with the Bureau of Trust Funds Administration (BTFA) to develop a tailored version of RM Fundamentals, provided information on the training design and development process, and shared instructional tools and templates.  They will use ReMIS resources to develop and provide records management training to more than 500 agency staff at BTFA and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

United States Department of Agriculture:  NARA's Training Program initially developed the RM Fundamentals course for USDA in 2019.  This course became the template for future iterations of RM Fundamentals that are developed for agencies who request it through Records Management Instruction Support (ReMis).  Over 75,000 staff across USDA agencies completed the initial version of RM Fundamentals.  ACT recently updated the RM Fundamentals course for USDA and over 103,000 staff have completed the new version so far.
