publishes notice 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 agencies no longer need them for current 
Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies to

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 they no longer 
need to conduct agency business. NARA invites public comments on such 
records schedules.

DATES: NARA must receive requests for copies in writing by January 11, 
2018. Once NARA finishes appraising 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 to 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: [email protected]
    FAX: 301-837-3698
    You must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NARA publishes notice in the Federal 
Register for records schedules they no longer need to conduct agency 
business. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as 
required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a).
    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 records retention 
periods and submit these schedules for NARA's approval. These schedules 
provide for timely transfer into the National Archives of historically 
valuable records and authorize the agency to dispose 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 creates or maintains the records. Items included 
in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media 
neutral unless the item is expressly limited to a specific medium. (See 
36 CFR 1225.12(e).)
    Agencies may not destroy Federal records without Archivist of the 
United States' approval. The Archivist approves destruction only after 
thoroughly considering 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, this notice lists the 
organizational unit(s) accumulating the records (or notes that the 
schedule has agency-wide applicability when schedules 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.
