Records Management


What is the Federal Records Act?
The Federal Records Act requires that each agency head and his or her designees are responsible for ensuring that their agency creates and maintains records that document their organization, functions, policies, and activities.

It also requires agency heads to be responsible for ensuring that the records of their agency contain the information needed to protect the rights of the Government and of those directly affected by Government activities.
