GAO Asks Five Agencies to Complete Government Records Mgmt Requirements

GAOThe Government Accountability Office has called on five agencies to comply with all government records management requirements set by the National Archives and Records Administration and Office of Management and Budget.

GAO said Thursday that it reviewed the federal agencies’ implementation of the directive through Dec. 31, 2014 and found insufficient actions toward meeting the requirements by five out of 24 agencies.

Based on the review, two agencies failed to designate a senior official to oversee records management actions, one agency failed to confirm the official on time and records management officers at two agencies lacked NARA training certificate.

GAO also found that the Office of Personnel Management, OMB and NARA have yet to complete all the required oversight actions.

The government oversight body said OMB expects to complete the addition of records management requirements for agency cloud transition to its circular A-130 by December.

NARA also plans to migrate agencies to an automated records management, except for metadata requirements.
