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.
