NARA Seeks Public Input on Draft Strategic Plan

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has issued an updated draft of its 2006-2016 Strategic Plan in compliance with the requirement in the Government Performance Results Act of 1993 for periodic updates at least every 3 years. NARA is seeking public comments on this draft plan by August 5, 2009.

Among the changes in this updated plan are:

  • Strategies for expanding NARA’s leadership in Federal records management, including electronic records management;
  • A strategy for establishing a new National Declassification Center;
  • Recognition of the Electronic Records Archive (ERA) as one tool in a larger electronic records program;
  • Inclusion of social media tools as new ways for the public and NARA to interact;
  • Inclusion of NARA’s National Historical Publications and Records Commission;
  • New human capital measures for telework and fast, effective hiring;
  • Progress made since NARA’s plan was issued in 2006.

Comments can be sent via e-mail to or by fax to (301) 837-0319.

One thought on “NARA Seeks Public Input on Draft Strategic Plan

  1. For such an important project, it is a shame that hardly any time has been given to the American Public to offer input in documenting its own history. What is the significance of the yellow highlighting in the “strategic plan” and why was it not indicated? I would like to be a part of the committee that works on electronic records management.
