[Main Archival Administration of the City of Moscow]
The archive was established in November 2002 as a repository for electronic documentation of the Archival Fond of Moscow, including materials designated for temporary as well as those for permanent preservation. The holdings will accordingly embrace electronic documentation created in Moscow by both governmental and non-governmental agencies, including private organizations and individuals. According to the founding decree it also includes electronic documentation relating to the history of Moscow, irregardless of its place of creation. The archive also accessions registration documentation, archival reference materials, and other data relating to fonds in the archive.
In December 2003, TsDENM accessioned its first major documentary complex with the acquisition of the database of "Licenses" (Litsenzii) of the state agency "Mosstroilitsenziia," containing data on construction licensing in the Moscow region for 1993-2002. That database with related electronic resources now constitutes fond no. 1 in the archive, and has 40,000 entries for construction agencies applying for licenses and over 85,000 licenses issued. Also included are registration data and documentation on appraisal in connection with the approval process, all of which required appropriate processing and description by specialists in the archive.
Access will be possible once the materials have been processed and described.
