Request for Comments on Two Draft NARA Bulletins to Update Format Guidance

We are making a few minor changes to NARA Bulletin 2014-04, Format Guidance for the Transfer of Permanent Records.  These changes will streamline the process for future updates to the format tables. We are making these changes via a new NARA Bulletin, 2018-XX.

We welcome your participation in the development of this guidance. We are requesting your comments on both bulletin drafts — NARA Bulletin 2018-XX and NARA Bulletin 2014-04.

Questions or comments for consideration are due by July 9, 2018. Please send your comments to  We will review all the comments we receive.
