Agency: National Archives and Records Administration, Agencies and Commissions
NARA published the final rule, Records Center Facility Standards, in the August 29, 2005, Federal Register (70 FR 50980). In that final rule, we revised Sec. 1228.240(c) entirely, removing subordinate paragraphs Sec. Sec. 1228.240(c)(1) and (c)(2). Paragraph Sec. 1228.240(d), which was not amended in the rulemaking, currently contains a sentence ``For requests submitted under paragraph (c)(2) of this section, NARA also will review the submitted plan to ensure that the plan is realistic.'' This correction removes that sentence.

Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments
Document Number: 05-18382
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-09-16
Agency: National Archives and Records Administration, Agencies and Commissions
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 mandatory instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. They authorize the preservation of records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and the destruction, after a specified period, of records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. Notice is published 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).
