We have released a new Bulletin on Agency Records Officer training, NARA Bulletin 2019-02. The purpose of this Bulletin is to describe the replacement of NARA’s Certificate of Federal Records Management Training with the new Agency Records Officer Credential (AROC). The Bulletin also establishes the requirement for Agency Records Officers to periodically renew the credential.
The Bulletin expands upon the recently issued OMB/NARA Memorandum M-19-21 (June 28, 2019) for NARA and Federal agencies to reform Government-wide records management policies and practices. Target 1.4 of the Memorandum indicates agencies must designate an Agency Records Officer who holds the Certificate of Federal Records Management Training.
