New CEO launches new business plan for The National Archives

Today, Oliver Morley, the newly appointed Chief Executive and Keeper, The National Archives, launches the new Business Plan for 2011-2015 entitled For the Record. For Good.

'For the Record. For Good.' lays out The National Archives' strategy for the next four financial years. The plan highlights the need to innovate and transform the organisation so it can embrace change and take on a more significant role for archives across the country.

Oliver Morley comments: 'Our role is to collect and secure the future of the record, both digital and physical, so that it's preserved for generations to come, and to make it as accessible and available as possible.

'The National Archives deals with millions of customers - both in person and online every year - making it one of the largest and most successful archives in the world. We're here for the government record, to ensure its past, and future, its use and re-use; keeping it authentic, available and accessible to all. But in the years ahead, our business plan will need to transform the kind of organisation we are. While the next four years will be dominated by the funding environment, we hold fast to the view that the cut in funding does not have to mean a cut in service quality.

'The focus of all our work over the next four years, from collection and preservation through to access, can be summed up very simply. It is: For the record. For good.'
