IISaM is evolving! For updates on the development of the Information Sharing Centre of Excellence, please visit the Centre of Excellence page.
The history: the Improving Information Sharing and Management (IISaM) project ran from January 2012 to summer 2013, and was joint initiative between Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Leicestershire County Council and the 10 local authorities in Greater Manchester. The project was supported by central government, the Local Government Association, the Information Commissioner’s Office and others. The work of the IISaM project demonstrated that the information sharing barriers being identified locally were applicable across other policy areas, and in other geographical locations. This conclusion was supported by central government, and work is underway to develop an Information Sharing Centre of Excellence, building on the experiences of IISaM.
