The Information management maturity measurement tool (IM3) has been developed by Public Record Office Victoria (PROV) to help Victorian government agencies assess the maturity of their current information management (IM) practices.
Comprising of a questionnaire and supporting documents, the tool helps to:
measure performance against the whole of Victorian government IM standards
assess an organisation’s ability to meet information management best practice.
The IM3 tool is intended to be used by information managers. In many cases, it will be appropriate for more than one person to collaborate on the assessment. Relevant people in the organisation should be consulted to contribute information relative to their area of expertise or knowledge, e.g. information security, data management or records management. Internal consultation can be conducted through meetings, interviews, surveys and/or workshops.
Please note that PROV is currently updating the IM3 tool. A new version will be released in early 2020.
IM3 includes Macros. Please enable content in MS Excel before commencing.
Select Yes if prompted to trust document and reduce pop-ups during the assessment.
If the tool appears to be unresponsive at any stage, press Enter or click out of the current cell.
