As required by statute (44 U.S.C. 3303a(d)), the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) issues General Records Schedules (GRS) to provide disposal authority for temporary administrative records common to several or all agencies of the Federal Government. The GRS include records relating to civilian personnel, fiscal accounting, procurement, communications, printing, and other common functions.

NARA has developed a new General Records Schedule, Information Technology Operations and Management Records, to provide disposal authority for certain administrative records generated in or acquired by agency components responsible for developing and operating network infrastructure and systems.

NARA invites public comments on this proposed new general records schedule, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). Because of the widespread interest in the management of electronic records, NARA is publishing the full text of the schedule with additional information on each item.

The proposed rule is in the June 27, 2002 Federal Register at page 43350.  Comments are due on August 26, 2002.
