(a) When must an agency submit a new schedule for electronic versions of previously scheduled hard copy records? Agencies must submit a new schedule to NARA for electronic versions of previously scheduled records if: (1) The content and function of the records have changed significantly (e.g., the electronic records contain information that is substantially different from the information included in the hard copy series or are used for different purposes). (2) The previously approved schedule explicitly excludes electronic records. (3) The electronic records consist of program records maintained on an agency web site. (4) The electronic records consist of program records maintained in a format other than scanned image AND the previously approved schedule is not media neutral. (b) When can an agency apply a previously approved schedule to electronic versions of the records? If the conditions specified in paragraph (a) of this section do not apply, the conditions in paragraph (b) apply: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:27 Nov 14, 2007 Jkt 214001 (1) Permanent records. (i) The agency may apply a previously approved schedule for hard copy records to electronic versions of the permanent records when the electronic records system replaces a single series of hard copy permanent records or the electronic records consist of information drawn from multiple previously scheduled permanent series. Agencies must notify NARA (NWM) in writing of records that have been previously scheduled as permanent in hard copy form, including special media records as described in 36 CFR 1228.266 and 36 CFR 1228.268. The notification must be submitted within 90 days of when the electronic recordkeeping system becomes operational and must contain the: (A) Name of agency; (B) Name of the electronic system; (C) Organizational unit(s) or agency program which records support; (D) Current disposition authority reference; and (E) Format of the records (e.g., database, scanned images, digital photographs, etc.). (ii) If the electronic records include information drawn from both temporary and permanent hard copy series, an agency either may apply a previously approved permanent disposition authority, after submitting the notification required by paragraph (b)(1)(i) or may submit a new schedule if the agency believes the electronic records do not warrant permanent retention. (2) Temporary still pictures, sound recordings, motion picture film, and video recordings. The agency must apply the previously approved schedule to digital versions. If changes in the approved schedule are required, follow § 1228.32. (3) Scanned images of temporary records, including temporary program records. The agency must apply the previously approved schedule. If changes in the approved schedule are required, follow § 1228.32. (4) Other temporary records maintained in an electronic format other than scanned images. (i) For temporary records that are covered by an item in a General Records Schedule or an agency-specific schedule that pertains to administrative/housekeeping activities, apply the previously approved schedule. If the electronic records consist of information drawn from multiple hard copy series, apply the previously approved schedule item with the longest retention period. (ii) For temporary program records covered by a NARA-approved media neutral schedule item (i.e., the item PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 64155 appears on a schedule approved before December 17, 2007 that is explicitly stated to be media neutral, or it appears on any schedule approved on or after December 17, 2007 that is not explicitly limited to a specific recordkeeping medium), apply the previously approved schedule.
