This document provides an overarching set of information principles for the UK public sector. It relates to the Government ICT strategy.
These principles are intended to express timeless truths for all public sector organisations, and also to provide concrete implications for implementation. They provide high-level guidance and therefore their scope is intentionally broad. They apply to all information that is created, collected, held, used, shared, transformed, published or processed by a UK public sector organisation. They aim to enable organisations across the public sector to become increasingly aligned in their use and management of information, drawing their own local strategy and practices from a common set of principles and best-practices.
