Facts About Records Management
Records Management is the responsibility of every NASA employee. As a government employee, you have three basic obligations regarding Federal records: 1) Create records to conduct NASA business, record decisions and actions taken, and adequately document the activities for which you are responsible; 2) Ensure records are organized and filed properly so they are safely stored and efficiently retrieved only by authorized personnel. Records should be filed in the official files of your organization, as identified on the organization’s file plan; and 3) Dispose of records in accordance with the NASA Records Retention Schedules and the General Records Schedule. For more information, visit the Records Management Web page or contact Patricia Southerland, 358-0621.

RSA SecurID Token Reduction Effort NEW

Collection Dates/Times: March 30 – April 10, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Location: Room CX42
Contact: Jeff Anderson, 358-1348
The Information Technology and Communications Division (ITCD) is conducting a campaign to reduce the number of RSA SecurID tokens at NASA HQ. The reduction in tokens will provide cost savings to HQ, improve security, and allow users to take advantage of newer technologies available. HQ personnel are encouraged to consider turning in tokens that are no longer utilized during the collection event. This effort will include a two-step process: 1) a voluntary turn in of unused/unneeded tokens; and 2) an ongoing managed reduction of tokens not used within 60 days. Users will have the opportunity to provide a justification for keeping tokens. Visit the HQ Token Reduction Project Web page for details, including guidance on determining when tokens are still required.

Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Training and Awareness

Contact: Darline Brown, 358-2039
STI is a critical component in the worldwide activity of scientific and technical aerospace research and development. It is essential to help NASA avoid duplication of research by sharing information and to ensure that the U.S. maintains its preeminence in aerospace-related industries and education. The STI Program collects, processes, archives, and disseminates NASA STI. Training on the STI request process is now available in SATERN (search OTH-004-03) and is highly recommended for those who publish/approve STI. All HQ STI Document Availability Authorization (DAA) requests must be submitted through the Agency's STI electronic DAA (eDAA) system using NASA Form (NF) 1676B. To ensure the STI eDAA is configured with the appropriate information for your Division, contact Darline Brown. For more information on the STI program, visit the HQ STI Web page.
