In 1961, Moscow city and oblast Archival Administrations were divided into separate administrative entities. The Moscow Oblast Archival Administration came under the authority of the Moscow Oblast Executive Committee (Mosoblispolkom), and initially retained both GIAMO and GAORSS MO under its jurisdiction, together with the branch of GAORSS which was established in Zaraisk in 1960. In 1963, the holdings of GIAMO were transferred to city jurisdiction and became the basis for the prerevolutionary division of the newly established Central State Archive of the City of Moscow (TsGA g. Moskvy) under the Archival Division of the Moscow City Executive Committee (Mosgorispolkom). In 1965 GAORSS MO was renamed the State Archive of Moscow Oblast, and its Zaraisk branch was moved to Bronnitsy.
In 1991 Moscow Oblast Archival Administration was renamed Committee for Archival Affairs of the Administration of Moscow Oblast (Mosoblkomarkhiv), in 1999—Administration for Archival Affairs of Moscow Oblast, and in 2005—Main Archival Administration of Moscow Oblast. At the present time under the Main Archival Administration supervises recordkeeping and archives throughout the oblast. It directly administers TsGAMO and its Branch for Temporary Storage of Documents (see D–8), Moscow Oblast Archival Center, along with almost 70 raion and municipal archives.
