Documenting Your Public Service

We are pleased to publish an update to Documenting Your Public Service. This guide provides information describing the responsibilities all government employees must follow for managing federal records. It is important for agencies to ensure employees are aware of their records management responsibilities, especially as we approach the upcoming Presidential transition.

We will be developing additional guidance related to the transition in the coming months. Our next products will directly relate to records management responsibilities for political appointees and other high level government officials.

We will also develop model onboarding and offboarding records management checklists. We ask that if agencies have similar checklists to share, please email them to Christopher Magee at
