Digital information management includes both data management and records management. There are standards and principles governing data and public records in the digital space, as well as requirements for protecting people’s privacy and managing security online. All of these need to be considered together to develop good information management practices.
System assurance is about providing ministers and the public with confidence that ICT and digital-enabled investments are well managed by agencies, and across government as a whole, and that the benefits and outcomes are being delivered.
Investment management in the state sector is led by Treasury. The Government Chief Digital Officer (GCDO) as the functional lead for digital, and the Government Chief Data Steward (GCDS) as the functional lead for data, provide advice to Treasury and to agencies.
