Information management policy framework and template

CILIP has published two new information management tools to help organisations create information management policies:

An Information Management Policy Framework for organisations and staff


The Policy framework sets out the key components needed to make information management work in an organisation.

It provides a concise list of elements that together will make a coherent IM policy. It points out the need for championship and advocacy at senior levels and provides strategies for convincing your leadership that IM action is needed. It outlines the IM responsibilities of staff, functions and management teams.

Information Management Policy Template

This template contains the principles and guidelines for inclusion in a core Information Management policy. It can be used in conjunction with Making Information Management Work: An information management policy framework for organisations and staff and can be adapted to the needs of the specific organisation.
