  • And that is why, with the exec team and the management board, we have defined our public task, very simply and clearly.We will fight for the public record. We’ll be there. In a tough funding environment for information and records management in government. Where departments have a huge volume of information assets to keep. When the archive sector across the country needs our help to ensure that they can meet their obligations to the record. When the public partly depend on us to get access to the transparent government they deserve.Our role is fundamental. We have the credibility to do this. And we have an important part in the government’s transparency agenda, as the front-line service for the public record
