Government Records: OMB & NARA Release Guidelines on Fed. Agency Management of E-Mail
A new seven page memo is embedded below. It’s available from the OMB (Office of Management and Budget) and/or from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA Bulletin 14-06).
In a Records Express Blog Post, NARA Points Out:
This Memorandum reinforces the importance for each agency to manage their email properly and the need for all Federal employees to be aware of their responsibilities for managing email records. As you know, this has been an important issue for Congress and the Administration over the last few months. It is also an animating issue as we continue to work towards the goal in the Managing Government Records Directive (OMB M-12-18) that all email be managed electronically by the end of 2016.
