We are requesting comments on a draft Bulletin entitled “Guidance on Senior Agency Officials for Records Management.” The draft is available here (.pdf)
We anticipate releasing this Bulletin by the end of the fiscal year. It was developed to consolidate guidance on the SAORM position and to clarify their roles and responsibilities. The Bulletin also outlines how Departments and agencies designate their SAORMs and agency Records Officers (ROs).
The draft Bulletin supersedes the Frequently Asked Questions about Senior Agency Officials (SAOs) Appointments and incorporates applicable content from the Managing Government Records Directive (M-12-18) (.pdf) and OMB Circular A-130 (.pdf)
We welcome participation in the development of this guidance. Please comment here or email PRMD@nara.gov with any questions or comments for consideration by August 28, 2017. We will review all the comments we receive.
