Information Management Capacity Check Tool and Methodology

Library and Archives Canada developed the IMCC to help federal departments and agencies assess their current IM capabilities against industry standards and best practices and develop a strategic plan to improve their IM capacity and practices. The IMCC was developed in collaboration with stakeholders, other GC central agencies and subject matter experts in the public and private sectors. Proof of concept was achieved in three successful pilot projects; the first on a department-wide basis, the second in a government cluster environment and the third at the project level within a department. The 6 elements and thirty-two criteria in the IMCC bring together all elements of information management practices.

To date, over thirty (30) Canadian federal government departments and agencies have successfully completed an IMCC self-assessment. The IMCC continues to be the tool of preference in the GC and the IMCC tool and methodology have garnered significant national and international attention.

Below is the IM Capacity Check Methodology as well as additional resources to assist you in completing an assessment within your institution.
