I was curious if you could expand on this comment a bit:

"Learn how GAO integrated its simplified big bucket functional retention schedule into the system design."

Is this an Agency-specific schedule that cites NARA GRS specific periods, or is it comepletely independent of the GRS? Iknow that NARA is in the process of revising many of it's schedules, but they are also leaning towards a desire for Agencies to develop their own indepoendent schedules and rely less on the NARA-mandated periods in the GRS, yet all Agencies must still have their schedules approved by NARA.

How does this big bucket functional schedlue fit into this scheme?
