Washington, DC, Area

The 2nd quarter for the Records Accessioning and Control Team was dominated by the annual "P" move of records from the Washington National Records Center; 20,531 cubic feet were added to the permanent holdings of the National Archives and Records Administration as a result of this year's annual move. Beginning in early February, the team began the move by coordinating the shipment of 6,545 cubic feet of materials, mostly from RG 307, directly to offsite storage in Lenexa, KS. The remaining 13,986 cubic feet of records began moving from the Washington National Record Center to College Park on February 23, 2010. The move was completed on March 18, 2010.

Also during the 2nd quarter of FY 2010, the Records Accessioning and Control Team accessioned 2,814 cubic feet of records under 65 SF-258s as either agency direct offers or late transfers from the Washington National Records Center; 921 cubic feet of this total came in as direct offers from various agencies under 30 individual SF-258s. The remaining 1,993 cubic feet of records came in as late transfers from WNRC, under 35 individual SF-258s. Included among these direct offers are approximately 80 cubic feet of NARA records. Among other things, these records include Archivist and Deputy Archivist Program and Policy Records during the administration of Archivist Don Wilson.

During the 2nd quarter, the Records Accessioning and Control Team completed and closed out 17 of the direct offer jobs for a total 463 cubic feet. At the end of the quarter, 13 of the direct offer jobs remained to be closed out amounting to a total of 458 cubic feet of records. The team also completed and closed out 26 of the late transfer jobs for a total of 1,157 cubic feet. At the end of the quarter, 9 of the late transfer jobs remain to be closed out amounting to a total of 736 cubic feet records.

The Records Accessioning and Control Team also received as additional 92 SF-258s for either late transfers or direct offers from agencies totaling 1,996 cubic feet of records. As the quarter closed, these jobs were approved, but the records had not been shipped to College Park.

Members of the Records Accessioning and Control Team continue to participate in the planning of the Accessioning functions of the Electronic Records Archives (ERA). As part of the 2010 P move, we accepted approved Transfer Requests (TRs) for 38 cubic feet of records from Patents and Trademark Office (RG 241) and from the records of the National Archives and Records Administration (RG 64).

During the 2nd quarter, team members with SCI security clearances continued to support record center activities by pulling and refiling records holding SCI classifications. During the first two months of the quarter, staff pulled and refilled materials to support the ongoing declassification review work of the State Department. In addition, they facilitated the temporary transfer of 119 cubic feet of Department of Justice SCI materials for center storage. We also took in 10 cubic feet of SCI records for the State Department, 77 cubic feet for Central Intelligence Agency and 81 cubic feet of SCI materials for the "FISA" Court for record center storage.
