ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request for comments. AGENCY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:32 May 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide agencies with mandatory instructions for what to do with records when agencies no longer need them for current Government business. The instructions authorize agencies to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notice in the Federal Register for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or to 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). NARA must receive requests for copies in writing by June 16, 2016. Once NARA appraises the records, we will send you a copy of the schedule you requested. We usually prepare appraisal memoranda that contain additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed schedule. You may also request these. If you do, we will also provide them once we have completed the appraisal. You have 30 days after we send you these requested documents in which to submit comments. DATES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in this notice by contacting Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA) using one of the following means: Mail: NARA (ACRA); 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740–6001. Email: request.schedule@nara.gov. FAX: 301–837–3698. You must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses after the name of the agency that submitted the schedule, and a mailing address.

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 prepare schedules proposing retention ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30569 periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval. These schedules provide for timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records and authorize 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 otherwise specified. An item in a schedule is media-neutral when an agency may apply the disposition instructions to records regardless of the medium in which it has created or maintains the records. Items included in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media-neutral unless the item is specifically limited to a specific medium. (See 36 CFR 1225.12(e).) Agencies may not destroy Federal records without the approval of the Archivist of the United States. The Archivist grants this approval only after thorough consideration of the records’ administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not the records have historical or other value. In addition to identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions requesting disposition authority, lists the organizational unit(s) accumulating the records or lists that the schedule has agency-wide applicability (in the case of schedules that cover records that may be accumulated throughout an agency); 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); and 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 also includes information about the records.

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 notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency 
requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once 
approved by NARA, records schedules provide agencies with mandatory 
instructions for what to do with records when agencies no longer need 
them for current Government business. The instructions authorize 
agencies to preserve records of continuing value in the National 
Archives of the United States and to destroy, after a specified period, 
records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA 
publishes notice in the Federal Register for records schedules in which 
agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for 
disposal or to 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: NARA must receive requests for copies in writing by June 16, 
2016. Once NARA appraises the records, we will send you a copy of the 
schedule you requested. We usually prepare appraisal memoranda that 
contain additional information concerning the records covered by a 
proposed schedule. You may also request these. If you do, we will also 
provide them once we have completed the appraisal. You have 30 days 
after we send you these requested documents in which to submit 
comments.

ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in 
this notice by contacting Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance 
(ACRA) using one of the following means:
    Mail: NARA (ACRA); 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740-6001.
    Email: request.schedule@nara.gov.
    FAX: 301-837-3698.
    You must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses 
after the name of the agency that submitted the schedule, and a mailing 
address. If you would like an appraisal report, please include that in 
your request.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Margaret Hawkins, Director, by mail at 
Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA); National Archives and 
Records Administration; 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001, 
by phone at 301-837-1799, or by email at request.schedule@nara.gov.

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 prepare schedules proposing 
retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA's 
approval. These schedules provide for timely transfer into the National 
Archives of historically valuable records and authorize 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 
otherwise specified. An item in a schedule is media-neutral when an 
agency may apply the disposition instructions to records regardless of 
the medium in which it has created or maintains the records. Items 
included in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, 
are media-neutral unless the item is specifically limited to a specific 
medium. (See 36 CFR 1225.12(e).)
    Agencies may not destroy Federal records without the approval of 
the Archivist of the United States. The Archivist grants this approval 
only after thorough consideration of the records' administrative use by 
the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private 
people directly affected by the Government's activities, and whether or 
not the records have historical or other value.
    In addition to identifying the Federal agencies and any 
subdivisions requesting disposition authority, lists the organizational 
unit(s) accumulating the records or lists that the schedule has agency-
wide applicability (in the case of schedules that cover records that 
may be accumulated throughout an agency); 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); and 
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 also includes information 
about the records. You may request additional information about the 
disposition process at the addresses above.
