Reasons for Disposition:
This schedule was originally approved as NC1-412-84-1/12. Item b of NC1-412-84-1/12 was previously deleted because interagency agreements are covered by EPA 001 and EPA 003. The disposition instructions have been rewritten as media neutral to allow for maintaining the record copy in EPA's electronic recordkeeping system. The retention has not changed.
Item c for electronic copies created with word processing and electronic mail applications deleted 08/22/2006 pursuant to NARA Bulletin 2006-04.
