Congressional Request for Appointment Calendars of a Former GSA Official

Headnotes: 

Under General Services Administration records retention regulations, the appointment calendars of current and former GSA officials are personal records and personal property, rather than official records and government property. Accordingly, under the facts presented, the GSA should return a former GSA official’s calendars to him. The former official, not the GSA, is responsible for responding to a congressional committee’s request for the calendars.
