Records Management at OGE

OGE has a Records Officer who also serves as OGE’s designated Senior Agency Official (SAO) responsible for ensuring the agency’s compliance with records management statutes and the implementing regulations of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). OGE has established and disseminated records management policies and procedures to ensure that all records, including email, are maintained and disposed of according to NARA-approved records disposition schedules. OGE is currently implementing plans to achieve compliance with the requirements set forth in the Managing Government Records Directive of August 24, 2012, M-12-18.

Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)


The Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) program establishes a standardize way for handling unclassified information that requires protection in accordance with law, regulation, and/or Government-wide policies, excluding information that is classified under Executive Order 13526, or the Atomic Energy Act, as amended.  The information may be sensitive in nature but is not classified. 

CUI must be marked prior to dissemination; however, agencies are authorized to issue waivers for certain CUI marking requirements. The OGE CUI waiver log describes waivers that OGE has issued regarding CUI marking requirements.

Date Description Rationale for Waiver Alternative Protection Methods
10/23/2018 Limited CUI marking waiver for CUI that remains within OGE’s custody. Marking CUI that remains within OGE’s custody is excessively burdensome for OGE staff.

OGE CUI will be protected in a secured controlled environment, locked file cabinet, and password/encryption (when applicable).  OGE CUI will be marked when sharing outside of OGE.

10/23/2018 Legacy materials containing legacy CUI markings. Re-marking legacy materials containing legacy CUI markings that remains within OGE’s custody is excessively burdensome for OGE staff.
 

OGE CUI will be protected in a secured controlled environment, locked file cabinet, and password/encryption (when applicable).  Legacy materials containing legacy CUI markings will be re-marked prior to sharing outside of OGE.

For additional information about the CUI program, you should contact your agency’s CUI Program Manager, Records Officer, or visit the CUI website at www.archives.gov/cui/about.  You may also contact ContactOGE@oge.gov for questions about OGE’s CUI program.
