About this page

Information is a key organisational asset and is vital to effective decision making, service planning, delivery and performance management. It is of paramount importance that the information the Council holds is efficiently managed and that appropriate standards, policies and procedures provide a robust governance framework.

The purpose of the Information Governance Policy is to provide an over-arching framework which will set out how the Council manages its information assets with the aim of ensuring that Harborough District Council:

  • Meets its legal obligations for the effective management of information
  • Recognises the key enabling role of information in delivering council objectives
  • Ensures that information is treated as a valuable asset
  • Ensures that sensitive personal data is held and processed securely
