It's important to manage your metadata well so that people can easily find, understand, use and share your information assets.
Improving how your agency manages metadata will also help it achieve Action 10 and Action 11 of the Building trust in the public record policy.
You can improve the way you manage your metadata by conducting a project to develop a metadata management framework or strategy.
A metadata framework is a planned, iterative approach to improving how your agency manages its metadata. A metadata strategy identifies goals and provides a path for improvement. Alternatively, you can incorporate metadata into your existing planning documents, such as your information governance framework and information management strategy.
