Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
Electronic Mail (E-Mail) - Records Management Guidance
September 10, 1999
MEMORANDUM To: Heads of Offices
Office of the Secretary Employees
From: Daryl W. White /s/ Chief Information Officer
Subject: Electronic Mail (E-Mail) - Records Management Guidance
The purpose of this memorandum is to clarify guidance issued by this office in a memorandum dated September 2, 1999, same subject. To reiterate the most important part of that guidance, you were informed that a recent U.S. Court of Appeals decision ruled that Federal agencies can delete electronic records from their computers as long as they have filed a paper copy of the records in their official recordkeeping system. The Office of the Secretary's current official recordkeeping system is the existing paper records filing system. As stated in the September 2, 1999 memorandum, employees must manage their E-mail records by:
Determining if the message meets the definition of a record.
Printing out the message (plus any attachments), along with the essential transmission data (author, transmittal date, all message recipients, subject).
Filing the paper copy of the record with all related paper records in your office's official paper recordkeeping system.
Deleting the E-mail message from your E-mail system on a timely basis.
E-mail messages may contain information that must be disclosed due to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, congressional requests, or to the courts in the course of litigation. E-mail messages that are the subject of active FOIA requests, congressional requests, or litigation must be printed out (along with any attachments and with the essential transmission data) and filed in your official paper recordkeeping system, before they are deleted from your e-mail system.
To the extent that any previously issued guidance is inconsistent with the policy articulated above, the previously issued guidance should be ignored.
For guidance in determining if your e-mail message is an official record, visit this website:www.doi.gov/ocio/records. For further assistance, contact Pamela Quallich, the OS Records Officer, at (202) 208-3909 or Ed McCeney, the Departmental Records officer, at (202) 208-3321.
