IMA published reports
The Information Management Assessment programme delivers measurable improvements in knowledge and information management capability by providing robust, independent validation of the standards and integrity of the information management processes within core government departments.
- works in partnership with appropriate bodies, to improve information management standards across central government
- supports and encourages organisations to review their own capability in relation to records management practice and information management processes
- ensures that The National Archives continues to promote exemplary information and records management and is a conduit for continuous learning and good practice as an outcome of the IMA, through publication of reports, findings and recommendations
Departments are reviewed six months after accreditation to the programme. In this time, departments are expected to work with The National Archives to develop an Action Plan and to show progress against the recommendations made. There will then be a continuous programme of six-monthly reviews of the Action Plan until completion of the plan or other appropriate deadline. An onsite progress meeting will be scheduled 12-14 months after the initial assessment visit. Thereafter, the department will be incorporated into the ongoing IMA programme.
