Managing Government Information Policy

The Province of British Columbia is the steward of a significant amount of government information, including data and records. The Managing Government Information Policy (PDF, 317.3 KB) is meant to help ministries understand their information management (IM) obligations and must be considered in conjunction with:

The Managing Government Information Policy sets out ministry obligations for managing government information, specifically as they relate to IMA requirements. Policy requirements are established for the full lifecycle of information, from creation and use to classification, scheduling and appraisal through to preservation and storage or transfer and disposal. This policy is a must read for all BC government employees who have a significant IM role.

The Records and Information Management Manual (in revision) details standards, processes and procedures that can support IM and ministry adherence to the requirements detailed in the Managing Government Information Policy.
