National Records of Scotland (NRS) Strategy and Business Planning

NRS operates within the National Performance Framework (on Scottish Government website) set by Scottish Ministers. We support several of the Scottish Government’s key National Outcomes and measure its Population Purpose Target.

The NRS strategy sets out our purpose and vision, the four supporting strategic ‘pillars’ and the values that underpin these elements. The strategy focuses on consolidating our profile as a single organisation and influential leader across the sectors in which we operate. Our transformation programme will support us to deliver our purpose more effectively in collaboration with our stakeholders.

Here is our strategy:
