7. Enhancing our information management capacity
Information management (IM) is critical to the success of our new business model. We produce a significant amount of documentation in the form of investigation files, legal opinions, memos, briefings, correspondence and other information. In turn, we receive a significant amount of information from external sources. To take best advantage of all this information, we must manage it in such a way that we can easily coordinate, re-use, re-purpose and distribute it in a useful, targeted and responsible manner.
In 2008–2009, we conducted a thorough assessment of our IM capacity. Consequently, we created a new IM division—regrouping the information technology (IT) function, the Records Centre, Library Services and the Access to Information and Privacy Secretariat—and developed a comprehensive long-term IM/IT strategy designed to make IM service delivery more proactive.
