Bush (43) and Barack H. Obama (44) administrations, as well as business decisions about the release of records in response to access requests.  These systems control and preserve those records and are used daily to support authorized National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) staff in answering access requests under the PRA and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  NARA’s EOP system, hosted in the FedRAMP-certified Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud, is to be a model for future NARA PRA collections in the cloud and to accept new transfers of born-digital and digitized record content.  The Barack H.
