Administrative Historical

Records that document the activities of the bureau and show its policies, achievements, and activities are of long-term value and should be retained. However, correspondence dealing with routine day to day matters should be weeded out when no longer needed. Records in "A": letters of transmittal that do not add any information to that contained in the transmitted material; quasi-official notices such as memoranda and other papers that do not serve as the basis of official actions, such as notices of holidays or charity and welfare fund appeals and similar papers. Records in "B": records that relate to the internal administration or housekeeping activities of the office. In general these records relate to the office organization, staffing, procedures, and communications; the day to day administration of office personnel; supplies and office services and equipment requests and receipts; and the use of office space and utilities; also, records that are duplicates of information filed elsewhere. Records in "C": records not duplicated elsewhere that document how the office is organized and how it functions, its pattern of action, its policies, procedures, and achievements.
