gather a decade of dust?

Does "gather a decade of dust" mean "wait for long time" here?

Plans are symbols.Academic organizations have few real pieces of objective evidence to evaluate performance. They have nothing comparable to profit or sales figures. How are we doing? No one really knows. Planning is a signal that all is well or improvement is just around the corner. A school or university undergoing an accreditation review engages in a“self-study”and lays out an ambitious strategic plan, which can then gather a decade of dust until it is time to repeat the process.
