National Records of Scotland (NRS) Strategy and Business Planning

NRS operates within the National Performance Framework set by Scottish Ministers. We support several of the Scottish Government’s key National Outcomes and provide the data for Scotland’s Population indicator.

The NRS strategy (171 KB PDF) sets out our purpose and vision, how we align our purpose to the national performance framework and being clear on what our priorities are in the upcoming years. We will refresh this strategy on an annual basis rather than provide a separate annual business plan, and we will report our achievements against the key success measures in our annual report and accounts.
