The NSW Government builds, owns and manages a significant portfolio of major infrastructure assets. The planning, design, construction and operation of these assets results in the creation, procurement and use of increasingly valuable data relating to the infrastructure portfolio. This data and information is in itself a state asset that needs to be effectively managed across the lifecycle of the infrastructure assets, as well as across the data lifecycle.
The Infrastructure Data Management Framework (IDMF) is a set of guidelines, procedures and standard approaches to support consistent management of infrastructure data across the NSW Government sector. The IDMF is aligned with the NSW Information Management Framework (IMF), which provides more general guidance on the management of government data and information.
Broad adoption of the principles and guidance of the IDMF will ensure that NSW has a coordinated, standardised and trusted framework to harness infrastructure data to better plan and operate the State’s infrastructure systems. It provides guidance on the collection, curation and sharing of the State’s infrastructure data.
This prototype website is a summary version of the IDMF for consultation which may not contain the full content of every section. For a comprehensive reference version of the content of the draft IDMF please download the PDF
This draft IDMF document is open for comment until August 2020. The IDMF is a living Framework and suggestions for additional components are welcomed. Where additional components are identified as necessary, development of additional content will continue during this time.
For example, a guide to measuring success of IDMF implementation against the overall objectives will be developed.
The IDMF will be finalised for approval by the Delivery and Performance Committee of Cabinet in November 2020.
