Releasing All We Can, Protecting What We Must
Public Forum Press Release
Washington, DC…On Wednesday, June 23 at 2:00 p.m., the National Archives will hold an open public forum to discuss the draft prioritization plan for the National Declassification Center (NDC) at the National Archives Building in Washington, DC. Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero will serve as moderator.
This forum is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. Attendees should register by June 18, 2010, by calling 301-837-0587. Leave your name, e-mail address, and phone number or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NDC will shorten the amount of time that it takes to declassify a document.
* Mission: To align people, processes, and technologies to advance the declassification and public release of historically valuable permanent records while maintaining national security.
* Vision: To be the world's preeminent declassification organization, responsive to all customers, committed to the free flow of information and the requirements of national security.
There are currently approximately 409 million pages of reviewed Federal records at the National Archives that require referral and archival processing prior to release to the public. Additionally, there almost three million pages of highly sought after scanned images of Presidential records awaiting processing as part of the Remote Archives Capture project.
3 The Remote Archives Capture Program was established in 1996 as a joint effort between the Presidential Libraries and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to facilitate declassification review and referral of classified Presidential papers in remote locations. This program digitally scans remotely located Presidential classified records and makes all twenty-five year old classified materials available electronically for declassification review in a centralized location in the Washington, DC area.
