Information management represents a unique challenge for governments of all sizes.
The vast amounts of historical information may stretch for literally hundreds of years and be stored on microfiche or tape or in a physical form like photographs – or even vellum.
In contrast, the vast amount of day to day information are comprisefd of forms and templates that contain constituent and other types of sensitive information. In this complex environment it is difficult to balance privacy while still being transparent to both constituents and other levels of government. Governments of all levels require better access and control over all information sources.
