Records Management Self-Assessment 2015

January 1, 1900

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) annual mandatory Records Management Self-Assessment (RMSA) for Federal agencies began on November 16, 2015, with a response deadline of January 29, 2016. The goal of the self-assessment is to determine whether agencies are compliant with statutory and regulatory records management requirements. The self-assessment provides agencies with information they can use to measure their compliance and to target their resources to areas that need improvement. NARA conducts the RMSA, as well as inspections and records management program reviews, in our capacity as the oversight entity for Federal records management. All 260 agencies receiving the RMSA link completed this year’s assessment. The respondent list includes all Cabinet-level department records officers, departmental components, and independent agencies. A few non-Executive Branch agencies voluntarily take part in the assessment. There is a small measure of improvement between this year’s scores and last year’s scores that reflects the very gradual improvement over the past several years. This year 36% of agencies scored in the low risk category, 47% in the moderate risk, and 17% in the high risk. In 2014, for the 258 agencies responding, the risk category breakdown was 34% low risk, 47% moderate risk, and 20% high risk. Scores and risk factors for each agency are included as Appendix III.
