According to NARA’s Web site, among the changes in this updated plan are the following:

  • 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 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, and
  • Progress made since our last plan was issued in 2006.
