Completion of Goal 3.2 of the Managing Government Records Directive

We are  pleased to announce the completion of another target from the Managing Government Records Directive. Target 3.2 of the Directive was to complete an overhaul of our General Records Schedule (GRS). This project is complete with publication of General Records Schedule (GRS) Transmittal 29 (.pdf).  We’ve now completely superseded the old GRS! GRS Transmittal 29, and all of the GRS, can be accessed on our website

The above photo commemorates this significant milestone. Here, Archivist of the United States David Ferriero is signing the transmittal. Behind him are (from left to right), GRS Team member Katherene Kim, Chief Records Officer for the U.S. Government Laurence Brewer, and Director of Records Management Operations Margaret Hawkins. We also want to take this opportunity to thank all the agencies that assisted in this project by answering questions and providing comments on draft schedules.
