NASA Records Management
What is a Record? Records document the Agency's business: it's organizations, policies, decisions, achievements, and operations. Records that document those aspects of NASA business are contained on paper, audio/visual, micrographics, and electronic media and managed as information resources. Information, in the form of records, is a critical resource necessary to assure the success of the Space program and preserve its history.
The objectives of NASA records management are to:
- make current and inactive records available for employee use,
- preserve significant records for future engineers and our Nation's history, and
- legally dispose of all others.
