Congressional Records Storage
The Federal Records Centers Program provides temporary storage for inactive records and personal papers accumulated by Senators and Representatives during their terms in Congress. This service is provided to Members as a courtesy, to ensure that their papers receive the proper care and protection. The papers are the property of the individual legislator and must be removed from the facility 90 days after the Member leaves office.
In addition to storage, the facility also provides the following:
-Basic records disposition and files maintenance assistance
-Storage cartons and forms to facilitate shipping records
-Prompt retrieval of stored documents
-Advice to members, when they leave office, on the process of withdrawing their papers for deposit in the repository of their choice.
