Getting started with information management

Information that you create, send or receive as part of your work for the Australian Government business is a record. If provides evidence of what your agency has done and why.

The Information management and data capabilities tool allows you and your agency to assess the skills and knowledge needed to create and manage information and data effectively to meet your business and accountability requirements.
