Open for Comment: Draft NARA Bulletin on Collaboration Platforms

We are requesting comments on a draft NARA Bulletin: Managing Records Created on Collaboration Platforms.

Please send comments or questions to by July 31, 2023.

This bulletin addresses the management of federal records created when agencies use collaboration platforms. We are issuing this bulletin to address agencies’ increased use of collaboration platforms to accomplish their missions, which has become a regular part of government work culture. The capabilities of collaboration environments are increasingly robust and have been useful tools when working from any location. These platforms provide an environment that supports rapid and effective collaboration opportunities both internally and with other agencies. 

This bulletin builds on the guidance in NARA Bulletin 2009-02: Guidance Concerning Managing Records in Multi-agency Environments.

We appreciate you taking the time to review this draft bulletin and provide comments.
