The consultation in 2014 resulted in the development of a new direction for the SCA. It identified the priorities for the archives and records management sector in Scotland and how SCA could most effectively help to deliver those priorities as well as continue to act as the lead independent advocacy body for the sector. You can find out more about our strategic goals at: www.scottisharchives.org.uk/goals.
SCA is participating in a wider review of ‘Archives for the 21st Century’. Working in partnership with other lead strategic bodies across the UK, SCA will help to ensure the Scottish sector is represented.
Corporate & Business Plans 2015-18
The Corporate Plan sets out the overall direction for a three-year period, while the Business Plan gives in more detail what will be achieved within a financial year (April 2015-March 2016). The Business Plan is about the hands-on, practical commitments underpinning delivery of individual projects that each contributes to SCA’s strategic direction.
At the time of writing we have reached the conclusion of the 2015-16 Business Plan (available at: www.scottisharchives.org.uk/documents/cbp/cbp-2015-18.pdf). An Annual Report detailing our activities will be published in due course.
For the past few months SCA Trustees and staff have been working on a plan for 2016-17 and this will be released soon.
