ACHP Announces Adoption of New Strategic Plan

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) has just announced that they have adopted a new strategic plan. From the ACHP press release: 

The ACHP is proud to announce the December 5, 2019, adoption of a new strategic plan. Previous versions were adopted in 2011 and updated in 2014.

The ACHP receives direction from the Office of Management and Budget which states: “The Strategic Plan...presents the long-term objectives an agency hopes to accomplish at the beginning of each new term of an Administration by describing general and long-term goals the agency aims to achieve, what actions the agency will take to realize those goals, and how the agency will deal with challenges and risks that may hinder achieving results.”

The updated strategic plan offers a new vision statement and cross cutting objective, and reinforces the agency’s desire to expand efficiencies in review of federal projects under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The draft strategic plan was made available for public comment in the summer of 2019. In August ACRA submitted a substantive, 7-page letter, that urged the agency to showcase best practices, expand its relationship with tribes, utilize new technology to assist in project planning, and more. These comments were crafted with the direct input of the ACRA Government Relations Committee and other members.

ACRA is still reviewing the final strategic plan to determine exactly how it will affect the way that CRM firms handle projects, and we will follow up with this information in another post shortly. In the meantime, take a look at the new strategic plan here, and you can review the full press release and additional information from the ACHP on their website.
