Agency: National Archives and Records Administration, Agencies and Commissions
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).
