Reminder: Capstone GRS Public Meeting

This is a reminder that NARA is holding an open public meeting on Thursday, May 21, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the McGowan Theater (basement level), National Archives and Records Administration downtown building, 700 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW to solicit comments on General Records Schedule 6.1: Email Managed under a Capstone Approach.  This is in conjunction with its publication in the Federal Register.

NARA will now also be live-streaming this event for convenience of interested participants and those who may not be in the DC area.  Participants can access the event at the below link.  Questions and comments during the event are encouraged on the live stream page.  Participants can also send questions or comments in advance by 9:00am on the day of the event to

If attending in person, please enter on the Constitution Avenue side of the building, the “Special Events” entrance (which is actually the exit for the general public). Registration information and other additional information on this meeting is published in a separate Federal Register Public meeting Notice.

A copy of the review package comprised of the proposed records disposition schedule, accompanying FAQ, and appraisal memoranda, can be downloaded (.pdf).  To aid in public understanding of this GRS, we also created a White Paper (.pdf) that provides additional background information on the Capstone approach, appraisal of records at NARA, and the development of this general records schedule. So that we can insure all comments are received and considered for the Federal Register comment period, comments must be sent to no later than June 1, 2015.
