Most agencies are doing a better job of managing their government records. Twenty-four agencies have seven requirements to improve record management. It's part of a directive the National Archives and Records Administration and Office of Management and Budget issued back in 2012. But the Government Accountability Office says five agencies have more work to do. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Valerie Melvin, director of information management and technology resources issues at the GAO, says some agencies didn't think the requirements were mandatory.

Will sequestration, retirement wave derail OPM's backlog goal

The Office of Personnel Management has made steady progress chipping away at a longstanding backlog of retirement claims. But Oversight Committee lawmakers and other government watchdogs remain concerned that the absence of a long-term plan to overhaul the mostly paper-based process combined with across-the-board budget cuts and a lack of strong leadership within OPM could stall or derail the progress the agency has made.
