The Federal Housing and Finance Agency (FHFA) believes in public trust through records integrity, and has taken steps to adequately and properly document the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures and essential transactions of the agency.
The National Archives and Records Administration defines “records” as all recorded information, regardless of form or characteristics, made or received by a Federal agency under Federal law or in connection with the transaction of public business and preserved or appropriate for preservation by that agency or its legitimate successor as evidence of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the United States Government or because of the informational value of data in them. The term 'recorded' information includes all traditional forms of records, regardless of physical form or characteristics, including information created, manipulated, communicated, or stored in digital or electronic form.
Consequently, we require mandatory records and information management training for every government employee to ensure everyone understands his or her responsibilities and the procedures for appropriately keeping and disposing of records. FHFA has also instituted an awareness campaign with promotional posters and information to infuse this message into our culture.
Created in July 2008, the FHFA follows all legal requirements for the management of federal records. FHFA has implemented guidance provided by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) that provides a starting point for self-assessment. For example, FHFA has designated a records officer; established a network of designated records management liaisons; issued a records management policy; and disseminated policies and procedures to ensure records are protected appropriately.
The objective of FHFA’s records management program is to assist employees to develop an efficient records program in their business units that will decrease duplication, increase productivity, improve customer services while reducing paperwork burdens, and assure the proper preservation of records having enduring value.
