About the awards!

by on May 27, 2009


Archivist Achievement AwardsOne of the highlights of RACO is the presentation of the Archivist Achievement Awards. These awards recognize Federal agencies who have achieved some notable success in their records managenent programs or activities that have significantly benefited the agency as a whole. This year the awards will be presented by the Acting Archivist Adrienne C. Thomas during the luncheon program.

The first awards were presented in 1998. For the first couple of years we called them “Best Practices in Records Management.” The awards that year went to the Bonneville Power Administration headquartered in Portland, Oregon, and the Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) here in Washington. Kathy Schultz, then Records Officer for PTO accepted their award. Kathy is now Records Officer for the Department of Homeland Security. Can someone remind me who accepted for Bonneville Power?

Who will be recognized this year? If you can’t be there in person – watch the Twitter feed around noon on Thursday for the live announcement!

Do you want to receive an award next year? Watch for the request for nominations next February.  We send the announcement to our agency points of contact. The nominations are reviewed by three NARA offices: the Life Cycle Management Division – the NARA records management staff who work most closely with the agencies; my office – the Modern Records Programs; the Policy and Planning Staff; and the final selection made by the Archivist of the United States.

We will be looking for your nomination in 2010!
