The Federal Records Act (44 U.S.C. 31) and corresponding Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs) require all federal agencies to maintain records that document their activities, file records for safe storage and efficient retrieval, and dispose of records according to agency schedules.
The DOI Records Program is leading a strategic effort to streamline records management, including electronic records management, across the Department. This multi-year initiative, now in planning stages, is designed to facilitate document searches and retrieval, records markings for special handling, improved access to Vital Records, and increased reliance on electronic versus paper records, in appropriate cases. This project will provide improved public transparency and access while reducing costs—saving taxpayer dollars.
