From the NARAtions Blog:
On Friday, the National Archives released the updated Open Government Plan that will guide our efforts in transparency, participation, and collaboration for 2012-2014.
Within our newly updated plan, you will see the specific items we plan to work on over the next two years, including:
- Strengthen our culture of open government by revisiting the strategic planning process;
- Improve employee engagement, including launching an agency-wide mentoring program;
- Improve internal collaboration and knowledge sharing through the use of our internal collaboration network;
- Strengthen our relationships with individual citizen archivists and groups, while exploring new crowdsourcing tools;
- Move Archives.gov to the cloud, implement a content management system and launch a web page for developers
- Establish a new Records and Information Management Network to support our internal records management;
- Issue a Records Management Directive outlining a 21st century framework for managing government records;
- Process backlog records related to the Katyn Atrocities, POW/MIA concerns, and the Cuban Missile Crisis; and
- Work with the General Printing Office to develop a mobile app for the Daily Compilation of Presidential Documents.
