I'm working in a digital preservation project for the Portuguese National Archive. Currently we need to migrate a bunch of images created in a previous digitization project to a new physical support. The images have 2 colors (Black and White) are in TIFF format with Group4 compression. These images are going to be stored in a safe way until 2013, preferably in TIFF format (with or without compression).

Why not use PDF/A then? It's an ISO standard for long term archival storage of electronic documents. See <http://www.aiim.org/article-pr.asp?ID=30413> for details.
