10. National Records of Scotland Business Planning
The National Records of Scotland (NRS) was formed on 1 April 2011 by the merger of the General Register Office for Scotland and the National Archives of Scotland.
Like other Scottish public bodies, NRS operates within the National Performance Framework set by Scottish Ministers. The Framework underpins delivery of the Scottish Government's purpose which is:
"To focus government and public services on creating a more successful country, with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish, through increasing sustainable economic growth."
The strategic objectives 2012-2022 link the Scottish Government National Outcomes and Purpose Targets, designed to achieve the Government's Purpose, with the work of every part of NRS. They provided a line of sight from the National Performance Framework to the job descriptions of individual NRS staff.
The NRS Strategy 2012-2022 sets out our vision for 2022, the key themes, strategic objectives and priorities for NRS.
