TBS/CIOB Information Management Initiative

 -  Summary  - 

The final report on "Information Management in the Government of Canada - A Situation Analysis" has been released by the Chief Information Officer Branch (CIOB) of the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS).

The report was the result of an initiative, co-sponsored by the CIOB and the National Archives of Canada (NA), to identify issues associated with the management of information in the Government of Canada and to recommend the means by which the issues could be addressed.

The initiative stemmed from the recognition by TBS, lead agencies such as the NA, and the IM/IT communities across government, that "information management" is an issue that transcends government and is key to the delivery of programs and services to the public. The work was based on substantial consultation with lead agencies, government departments, and the IM and related communities.

As noted in the report, "information is the fuel driving government programs and services. In Canada’s knowledge-based society the quality, integrity and ongoing accessibility of information, including that produced in the public sector, is crucial".

The report makes several recommendations on the management of information required to support decision-making and the delivery of programs and services, and to ensure the government is able to meet various accountability requirements.

Recommendations address the immediate government priority of implementing Government On-Line and the management of government records, especially those generated by computers. It also contains recommendations on the development of a sustainable information management infrastructure. Such an infrastructure comprises policies, standards and practices, systems and people, designed to support the creation, use and preservation of the information.
