NARA seeks comments on rule changes

Link to the proposed rule

Officials at the National Archives and Records Administration announced today that they are seeking comments from other federal agencies and from the public on proposed revisions to the agency's rules for managing federal records.

NARA officials cited the need for updating the agency's regulations to reflect current standards and practices, especially in the area of electronic-records management. Current regulations, they said, do not adequately account for the larger role that information technology staff members have in managing electronic records.

According to NARA officials, IT staff members who manage the information systems that contain electronic records do so according to their own procedures, which are sometimes at odds with practices that federal records managers consider optimal.

Agency officials said they would accept comments on the proposed rule changes until May 14.
