NARA update: enhancement to Federal Register notices of proposed records schedules


Those of you who monitor proposed records schedules in the Federal Register may be interested in a change NARA is piloting in response to a request from schedule commenters. We made this change in the hope of making it easier to see which schedules are included in a Federal Register notice.

The enhancement adds a direct link to the schedule docket that includes the list of agency schedules open for comment in the Federal Register "Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request for comments".

See the current Records Schedules: Availability and Request for Comments for an example. The link to the list of specific schedules appears under the "addresses" section. (A PDF of the Federal Register page showing the same information is attached as well.)

Previously, commenters had to cut-and-paste or type the docket number into, so we hope this change will streamline the review process. Again, this is a pilot, so we'll be adjusting based on our experience with this change. If you have any feedback, please let me know.

Best regards,

Meg Phillips
