Definitions Edit

An administrative record is

[a] set of documents that is the basis for any Federal agency administrative action, including, but not limited to, rulemaking. Under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), any judicial review of a final agency action is based on the administrative record. Administrative actions that are not rules may include denials of citizens' petitions, individual permit decisions, and exemption decisions. These actions are typically based in an administrative record.[1]
[a] document that has been preserved because it facilitates the operations and management of an agency, but which does not relate directly to programs that help the agency achieve its mission.[2]
