The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is an independent agency of the United States government charged with preserving and documenting government and historical records and with increasing public access to those documents, which comprise the National Archives. NARA is officially responsible for maintaining and publishing the legally authentic and authoritative copies of acts of Congress, presidential proclamations and executive orders, and federal regulations. The NARA also transmits votes of the Electoral College to Congress. The chief administrator of NARA is the Archivist of the United States.
Below, you will find a list of transferred records from federal agencies to NARA, for the period of November 1, 2016 – February 2017.
For reference, NARA uses Record Groups to identify what agency or type of record it holds. Although too large to paste here, you can find a full breakdown of record groups to reference at: Statistical Summary of Records Holdings of the National Archives of the United States.
