Public Meeting To Solicit Comments in Response to the 
Presidential Memorandum, Managing Government Records

AGENCY: National Archives and Records Administration.

ACTION: Notice of meeting.


SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) will 
hold an open meeting to solicit public comments in response to the 
Presidential Memorandum on Managing Government Records, dated November 
28, 2011. The Memorandum directs the Archivist of the United States, in 
coordination with the Director of OMB, to consult with those inside and 
outside of the government interested in improving records management 
and open government. Comments and suggestions received by NARA and OMB 
will help inform the Records Management Directive that will be issued 
later this year. The Presidential Memorandum can be found at http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/11/28/presidential-memorandum-managing-government-records (see also 76 FR 75423, 12/1/11).
    This meeting is primarily focused on gathering input from the 
public interest community, from the vendor/IT community, and from 
members of the public at large. (Federal agencies will separately be 
submitting reports to NARA that contain their suggestions for improving 
and reforming records management.) Additionally, NARA has an IdeaScale 
site established to receive comments at http://govrecordmanagement.ideascale.com/.

DATES: The meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 27, 2012, from 10 
a.m. to 12 p.m.

ADDRESSES: National Archives Building, William G. McGowan Theater, 700 
Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20408. Please enter on the
