New Report From the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) On Its Plans to Reinvent Itself

New Report From NARA: "A Charter for Change: Charting the Course" (71 pages; PDF)

The final report contains:

+ a set of shared values and dozens of ideas about how we can turn these values into practice;

+ A workable plan to restructure the organization around major customer groups; and

+ an impressive list of action items already completed that demonstrates  that great ideas about improvements
can be found throughout the agency if we exercise the leadership to listen and help you make them real.


David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, shares a few thoughts and a brief but useful introduction to the report on his AOTUS: Chief Collector blog.

From the Blog Post:

Our plan was developed with the help of over 40 staff members working on the Transformation Launch Team and in consultation with hundreds of National Archives’ staff. It represents the changes we must make to better serve the American people.

How are we going to become more competent and more efficient?

We’re creating a new culture based on common values at the National Archives. We’re restructuring the agency to better serve the American people and the government. And we are living the principles of Open Government — transparency, participation, and collaboration.

[Clip]

While the full story is told in Charting the Course, here are just a few of the new offices and positions you should expect to see at the National Archives in the future:

+ Research Services will combine two separate offices to create one service for researchers accessing the records of the National Archives.

Information Services will spark creativity and develop innovative tools that help people discover the records of the National Archives.

+ The Chief Records Officer will lead records management throughout the Federal government with an emphasis on electronic records.

+ The Chief Operating Officer will provide operational leadership to the agency.

+ The Human Capital Office will drive employee engagement by investing in our staff and their development.

+ Business Support Services will help our agency function with efficiency by providing the services that staff need to do their work.
