NARA is in the final stages of our records scheduling process with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for schedule DAA-0567-2015-0013, Detainee Records. This schedule was originally proposed to NARA on October 26, 2015. NARA published notice of the pending schedule in the Federal Register on July 14, 2017. The schedule, which covers records related to deaths of detainees and allegations of sexual assault and abuse of detainees, received a record number of public comments. NARA has published a Notice in the Federal Register and consolidated reply to comments on Regulations.gov. The public now has an additional 45 days to submit comments to NARA specifically related to items proposed for disposition on the schedule.
Because of significant public interest in this schedule, NARA is also posting copies of the revised proposed schedule and the appraisal report on Regulations.gov with the notice from the Federal Register. The appraisal report is derived from NARA’s on-site reviews and discussions with ICE officials about agency business processes. Like all agency schedules, this one must be approved by the Archivist of the United States, following completion of the public notice and comment period, before it takes effect.
If you have comments about the proposed schedule, please follow the comment submission process described in the Federal Register notice.
