Agency Records Management Reports Posted

Yesterday, April 6th, NARA issued a press release about the 2016 records management reporting period. You can read the full press release here.

Our office is posting the Senior Agency Official for Records Management (SAORM) Reports and Federal Email Management Reports online.

These two reports focus on how agencies are meeting the goals of the Managing Government Records Directive. In addition, NARA receives Records Management Self-Assessment (RMSA) reports, which provide an overview of each agency’s general records management program.

Preliminary data shows that the majority of agencies are managing their email electronically, but improvements are needed to be fully compliant with NARA’s success criteria for managing email records. We are continuing our efforts to ensure full reporting data is collected and analyzed to better understand how effectively the Federal government is managing its records and information.
