This technology includes access to a scanner that can create documents in portable document format (PDF), up-to-date software for creating and reading PDF documents, and an email account that can send and receive email attachments up to ten (10) megabytes in size. While all new OCAHO cases will be eligible for the pilot, OCAHO may limit the total number of cases that will be accepted into the pilot program once it commences, as circumstances require. III. Procedures for Participation OCAHO cases commence with the filing of a complaint, by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in cases brought under 8 U.S.C. 1324a and 8 U.S.C. 1324c, or by the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC), or the charging or injured party in cases brought under 8 U.S.C. 1324b. OCAHO subsequently issues a Notice of Case Assignment to both parties, assigning the case to an OCAHO ALJ and giving the respondent the opportunity to file an answer. After the respondent files an answer, the ALJ issues an order for prehearing statements, setting a schedule for discovery and dispositive motions. Under this pilot program, once OCAHO receives the respondent’s answer, OCAHO will invite parties to participate in the pilot by mailing to both parties instructions outlining the procedures for the pilot and the certification form the parties must complete and sign in order to participate in the pilot program. In order to enroll in the pilot, each party must submit the signed certification form in hard copy to OCAHO and serve a copy of the certification on the opposing party. The certification must: Identify the email address the party will use for all caserelated communications and submissions; certify that only authorized individuals will have access to that email address; attest that the party has access to the necessary technology; and consent to abide by the specific procedures for filing and service outlined in the e-filing instructions that will be sent to each party. If both parties to a case agree to participate in the pilot and meet the certification requirements, they will be notified by mail and email that their case has been accepted into the pilot program. Thereafter, all case documents shall be filed with OCAHO and served VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:23 May 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 on the opposing party in the case by email. All documents submitted under this pilot that require a signature under 28 CFR 68.7, including motions, briefs, and other pleadings, must include a handwritten, scanned signature. All files submitted by email must be in PDF. For cases enrolled in the pilot program, all decisions and orders issued by the ALJ (or, in cases of administrative review, the CAHO) will be signed, scanned, and emailed to both parties in the case. The pilot will be entirely voluntary. A case will not be accepted into the pilot unless both parties consent in writing to participate. Once accepted, the parties will be responsible for all activity and communications from their designated email account. Parties who elect not to participate in the pilot will continue to file and receive case documents as set forth in 28 CFR part 68. IV. Additional Information The pilot program will be effective for 180 days after the date of this notice. Parties who properly enroll in the pilot program during this 180-day period will be allowed to continue filing by email throughout the duration of their case before OCAHO, even if the case remains pending beyond the 180-day pilot period. OCAHO will continue to accept paper submissions in accordance with the procedures at 28 CFR part 68 in all cases not enrolled in the pilot program. Parties and their representatives will be responsible for all activity and communications with OCAHO conducted from the party’s or representative’s designated email account. Parties and their representatives must take necessary steps to ensure that only authorized individuals have access to the party’s or representative’s designated email account and all official case documents sent and received through that email account, as those documents may contain sensitive or protected privacy information.

Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. They authorize preservation of records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and destruction, after a specified period, of records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notices for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). DATES: Requests for copies must be received in writing on or before June 30, 2014. Once NARA completes the appraisal of the records, NARA will send a copy of the schedule. NARA staff usually prepare appraisal memoranda that contain additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed schedule. These, too, may be requested and will be provided once the appraisal is completed. Requesters will be given 30 days to submit comments.

These schedules provide for the timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records and authorize the disposal of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. The schedules listed in this notice are media-neutral unless specified otherwise. An item in a schedule is media-neutral when the disposition instructions may be applied to records regardless of the medium in which the records are created and maintained. Items included in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media-neutral unless the item is limited to a specific medium. (See 36 CFR 1225.12(e).) No Federal records are authorized for destruction without the approval of the Archivist of the United States. This approval is granted only after a thorough consideration of their administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private persons directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not they have historical or other value. Besides identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this public notice lists the organizational unit(s) accumulating the records or indicates agency-wide applicability in the case of schedules that cover records that may be accumulated throughout an agency. This notice provides the control number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for destruction). It also includes a brief description of the temporary records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the records at the file unit level as well as their disposition.

Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments

AGENCY: National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)

ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request 
for comments

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) 
publishes notices at least once monthly of certain Federal agency 
requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once 
approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on 
what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government 
business. They authorize preservation of records of continuing value in 
the National Archives of the United States and destruction, after a 
specified period, of records lacking administrative, legal, research, 
or other value. NARA publishes notices for records schedules in which 
agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for 
disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized 
for disposal. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, 
as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a).

DATES: Requests for copies must be received in writing on or before 
June 30, 2014. Once NARA completes the appraisal of the records, NARA 
will send a copy of the schedule. NARA staff usually prepare appraisal 
memoranda that contain additional information concerning the records 
covered by a proposed schedule. These, too, may be requested and will 
be provided once the appraisal is completed. Requesters will be given 
30 days to submit comments.

ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in 
this notice by contacting Records Management Services (ACNR) using one 
of the following means:
    Mail: NARA (ACNR), 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001.
    Email: request.schedule@nara.gov.
    FAX: 301-837-3698.
    Requesters must cite the control number, which appears in 
parentheses after the name of the agency which submitted the schedule, 
and must provide a mailing address. Those who desire appraisal reports 
should so indicate in their request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year, Federal agencies create billions 
of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control 
this accumulation, agency records managers

[[Page 31145]]

prepare schedules proposing retention periods for records and submit 
these schedules for NARA's approval. These schedules provide for the 
timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable 
records and authorize the disposal of all other records after the 
agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are 
comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its 
major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one 
office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update 
previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as 
permanent.
    The schedules listed in this notice are media-neutral unless 
specified otherwise. An item in a schedule is media-neutral when the 
disposition instructions may be applied to records regardless of the 
medium in which the records are created and maintained. Items included 
in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are 
media-neutral unless the item is limited to a specific medium. (See 36 
CFR 1225.12(e).)
    No Federal records are authorized for destruction without the 
approval of the Archivist of the United States. This approval is 
granted only after a thorough consideration of their administrative use 
by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private 
persons directly affected by the Government's activities, and whether 
or not they have historical or other value.
    Besides identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions 
requesting disposition authority, this public notice lists the 
organizational unit(s) accumulating the records or indicates agency-
wide applicability in the case of schedules that cover records that may 
be accumulated throughout an agency. This notice provides the control 
number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, 
and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for 
destruction). It also includes a brief description of the temporary 
records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the 
records at the file unit level as well as their disposition. If NARA 
staff has prepared an appraisal memorandum for the schedule, it too 
includes information about the records. Further information about the 
disposition process is available on request.
