Completed 55 new and 69 revised forms, eliminated 5 unofficial forms, which were responsible for the creation of 39,650 pieces of paper. 2. Here are some of the most significant Forms Management projects completed during this quarter: a. Saved $95 by using three Department of Army forms in lieu of having new agency forms developed. b. Developed a new form to be used by OBPAM in connection with the agency cost-reduction program. c. Saved $432 by combining four forms into one for use by the cartographic division of ORR. d. Saved $3500 by realigning the format for the contact services information report to make it conform to the DDP information report. This saving pertains primarily to the printing of these two informa- tion reports. e.

Worked with Contact Office in developing an inventory and a new records control schedule. i. 0SI - reviewed an entirely new schedule which provided for changes in 13 items. Five of these provide for disposition of records one year earlier than previously, and three items eliminated the transfer of records to the Records Center and provide for their disposition in headquarters. J. Reviewed a proposed schedule for the executive staff of the Office of Security and returned it to them for changes in disposition instructions. Their suggested dates of destruction were too long in most instances. k. Office of Logistics/Logistics Service Division - revision of their entire schedule. 1. ERR - schedule revised to show the transfer of 18,060 cubic feet of records to OBI to conform to the transfer of functions from 0RR to them. 2. and I discussed the status of actions pending on GAO clearance of unaudited financial records with 25X1 of the Office of General Counila. It appears that an impass had been reached in the informal negotiations between the GAO and CIA for the orderly disposition of our finan ia1 records. These representatives of the Office of the General Councq"believe that the audit and clearance system used by the Department of the Army should be studied for possible application to our problem. Copies of the regulations of the Department of the Army have been obtained and we will now proceed to develop a suggested program to solve the problem of the proper preservation and disposition of agency financial records.

Efforts are being made to eliminate approximately 200 cubic feet of men randuwcopies of CBS payrolls now in our Records Center. According to general schedules, the original payroll records have to be retained for 67 years. We have only recently ben abb. ,to determine that the original copies of 05S records were in Records Center under GAO control. We are trying now to match_ mpl+a of the payrolls in our Records Center with those from the`Records Center in St. Louis. If this can be done, we can eliminate about 200 cubic feet now in our center. 1+. I Icoordinated the disposal of certain COS records held by the a.ion Archives with the Executive Officer of SSU. 5. I I coordinated a request for agency concurrence in the restitution of captured German records held by the National Archives. No official objection was raised, and we concurred in the return of these records to Germany. III. NPIC RECORDS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM 1. We were requested to assist in the completion of records control schedules. NPIC expects to expand substantially, and they were criticised by an inspection report on the lack of a complete records management program. As a result, there is considerable emphasis now on completing records inventory and schedules by December 1965. Dave assiped to assist their records officer. of this staff presented three filing workshops. 3. worked with the development of a new correspondence handbook for NP C . IV. FILING SYSTEM, EQUIPMENT, AND SUPPLIES 1. The Office of Logistics has advised us that last fiscal year there were 301 four-drawer safes turned in by agency offices for reissue. This is the first time that the Office of Logistics has received more safes from agency offices than they issued to them. This condition results substantially from the conversion of conventional filing equipment and methods to shelf filing. In addition, increased records disposition accounts for a substantial portion of it. 2. We concurred in an action by the Office of Logistics to declare 100 four-drawer safe cabinets surplus to the needs of the agency. These safes were valued at $L9,000 by the Office of Logistics. Hovever, their replace- ment on today's market would require the expenditure of approximately *54..000. We are developing data on the experience of the agency in potential need for filing equipment and hope that we can suggest to Logistics a reduction in their present stock level of 250 four-drawer safes. 25X1 (3) Approved For Release 2005/11/21 :=CIA-RDF70-00211 R000500100012-1 Approved For Release 2005/11/21 cIA-RDP70-00211 R000500100012-1 3.
