Annual RM Reporting Period

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

This year, we will ask agencies to report on the following:

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 here. If agencies need to designate an SAO or make changes to this list, they may send a notification to 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. We will send agencies an individualized report of their results after we analyze the data. We will also prepare and publish a comprehensive report later in FY 2015.
