Archivist of the US Announces NARA Reorganization Plan
Recently, Archivist of the United States David Ferriero marked his first year in office and many of the initiatives he began since taking the helm are starting to bear fruit. Last summer, Ferriero created a staff task force to draft a plan for the “transformation” of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Ferriero recently unveiled Charting the Course, the reorganization plan for “reinventing” the National Archives.
Throughout the development of the plan, Mr. Ferriero emphasized that his goal for the transformation of the National Archives was much more than merely reorganization. Ferriero has made clear that if all reorganization does is to redraw the organizational chart without making a profound change in NARA’s underlying culture improvements will only be incremental, not transformational. In releasing the plan, Ferriero stated, “This is not a ‘rearrangement of the deck chairs,’ but a bold new way of positioning ourselves to face the future.”
