The Information management policy framework (IMPF) identifies and defines the various domains which contribute to effective information management across the Queensland Government.
It is an organising framework for establishing a common viewpoint and shared understanding of the broad scope of information management activities undertaken. Additionally, it can be used as a tool to categorise information management activities which can then form the basis for undertaking gap analysis and discovering duplication.
The IMPF has 2 levels of domains. Level 1 domains are high-level domains that cover all information management activities across government. Each level 1 domain has 1 or more level 2 domains. Level 2 domains define the specific elements of their parent domains.
The level 1 domains are:
- Information governance (IM-1)
- Knowledge management (IM-2)
- Information asset management (IM-3)
- Information access and use management (IM-4)
- Record management (IM-5)
- Data management (IM-6)
- Information security (IS)
Information governance (IM-1)
This domain focuses on overall policy, planning, architecture and direction for information and information management practices across government.
Knowledge management (IM-2)
This domain focuses on an integrated approach to managing knowledge across government. This includes building upon existing knowledge assets, deriving additional value from knowledge assets and making valuable linkages between knowledge assets.
Information asset management (IM-3)
This domain focuses on full life-cycle management of information as an asset and classifying it so it can be found and used across government.
Information access and use management (IM-4)
This domain focuses on sharing, licensing and use of information so that the access and usage controls of information assets are clear and widely understood in order to make all information assets easy to find and utilise as widely as possible.
Records Management (IM-5)
This domain focuses on ensuring legislative and regulatory record keeping requirements are met, the business need of clear accountability requirements is fulfilled, and community expectations on the proficient and appropriate management of public records is met.
Data Management (IM-6)
This domain focuses on the management and maintenance of government data that underlies our information assets.
Information Security (IS)
This domain focuses on protecting government information assets from unauthorised use, accidental modification, loss or release to the public.
