The Archivist of the United States [David Ferriero recently] sent a memorandum to Senior Agency Officials for Records Management (SAORM) and agency records officers.

- electronic messaging and encrypted messages;
- managing web records; and ensuring that all staff, especially incoming political appointees, are properly trained on their responsibilities for records management.
