NARA (USA) Proposed Rule on NARA Office Hours; Comments by US Archivist on NARA morale

The National Archives and Records Administration (USA) has proposed a rule revising its regulations that provide NARA's facilities hours of operations. This will remove the hours from the Code of Federal Regulations and establish procedures that NARA offices must follow when changing facilities hours of operation. Individuals will be directed to obtain hours information directly from NARA's website (http://www.archives.gov) Comments on the proposed rule are due by November 8, 2010--see the proposed rule of where to submit comments or see:

US Archivist Ferriero released a statement on the ranking of NARA by employees compared to other government agencies. The rankings are based on the results of the 2010 Employee Viewpoint (FedView) Survey, which was administered to Federal employees by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management earlier this year--and NARA ranking was poor.
