The Office of Public Sector Information and The National Archives are to merge

12 July 2006

The new organisation will have a stronger influence on government information policy than its constituent parts did by themselves. Work will be undertaken to ensure that government and the public sector take information management seriously, re-use their information assets in the right way and preserve their records according to agreed standards.

In October 2006 a full strategy statement will be published that will build on the announcements already made and will describe a five year plan which will result in better services to customers and stakeholders.

For members of the public who are able to travel, open sessions are being held at the Family Records Centre on 29 June at 12:00 and at Kew on 30 June at 11:30.
