The DOI Records Management Program focuses primarily on records created, received, and used by the Department of the Interior in the conduct of official business. The secondary focus is the media in which the record exists (paper, audiovisual, cartographic, and electronic media). It is the Department's policy to properly identify recordkeeping requirements and to effectively and efficiently manage needed records throughout their life cycle (creation, use and maintenance, and disposition). The Department of the Interior Records Management Program is responsible for providing leadership and direction for the Department's records management program. Among its responsibilities are:
Products/Outreach: The Departmental Records Officer maintains a complete set of the Department's records disposition schedules, which serve as a high-level finding aid to all Departmental records. Other materials maintained include a complete set of Departmental records management policy, guidance, and procedures, as well as a reference collection of records management related materials (NARA brochures, pamphlets, posters, NARA training schedules, etc.).
