IMA reports and resources

Our independent reports review information management capability and compliance across government. They champion good practice and make targeted recommendations for improvement.

This page contains IMA reports, action plans and progress reviews. Progress reviews are carried out a year after the publication of the initial report and assess progress made against the agreed action plan. You will also find a short report that collates examples of good practice identified in participating organisations since the IMA programme’s first formal assessment in 2008. This report will be updated periodically as further IMAs are conducted and new examples of good practice are identified.
