Information Management Toolkit                                            Access IM Toolkit

The IM Toolkit is a set of online resources to help local authorities effectively and efficiently manage their information. The toolkit is regularly updated to ensure it's up-to-date with the latest best practice and legislation.

The benefits of the toolkit include:

  • assisting with legislation and statutory compliance
  • enabling service improvement through effective information management
  • providing a resource that enables ALGIM members to upskill in the IM arena
  • providing the tools to manage information effectively and efficiently
  • efficient use of resources through sharing the costs of the toolkit development
  • reducing the need to engage with external service providers.

More details

The toolkit includes:

  1. factsheets
  2. foundation modules
  3. best practice modules
  4. tools and technology modules
  5. self-assessment module
  6. terms for council.

 Most modules typically contain two base components:

  1. how the module should be used and the methodology of the development of the tool
  2. generic templates and useful forms that can be used to assist with the development of the tool.

Each factsheet and module is developed, reviewed and/or updated by working groups consisting of representatives from local authorities. The responsibilities of the ALGIM IM Toolkit Working Group include:

  • reviewing the content of the appropriate module to ensure it meets the business requirements of local authorities
  • providing suggestions for improvement to the ALGIM IM Project Lead
  • ensuring the appropriate module of the toolkit is legislative and statutory compliant.

We encourage councils to provide us with feedback and ideas on how the toolkit can be further enhanced to meet their information management needs.

If you have any queries please email ALGIM
