The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is supposed to stop accepting paper records from agencies by the end of 2022, but NARA is reevaluating that goal after the pandemic put digitization work on hold at some agencies.

  • Sheena Burrell, Deputy Chief Information Officer at NARA, said the agency is still trying to meet its goal but is monitoring COVID-19 situations across the country and plans to discuss potential changes with the Office of Management and Budget.
  • Because some Federal Records Centers are closed due to the pandemic, NARA has faced difficulties digitizing records, said Burrell.
  • The pandemic has also limited agencies’ ability to digitize their records that were not already electronic, she explained.
