Corporate Information Management Unit (CIMU)

The Corporate Information Management Unit (CIMU) provides advice and guidance to Council staff on the appropriate management of information and records, and includes the co-ordination of the Council's response to requests made under information legislation.

What do we do?:

Records Management

CIMU box storageThe Corporate Information Management Unit (CIMU) offers a service to manage and store current and semi-current paper records for business units of Worcestershire County Council.  Records are 'semi-current' when they are no longer needed on a daily basis by the business unit, but may need to be referred to occasionally, kept to evidence decisions, or to comply with legal requirements. 

We also provide advice, guidance and recommend best practice on the active management of all formats of physical and electronic records, from creation through to disposal, to ensure the council is keeping the right information, in the right place, for the right period of time.

Information Legislation

CIMU provides advice and guidance to staff on how information legislation impacts the Council.  This includes the co-ordination of the Council's responses to requests for information made under, and advises staff on compliance with, information legislation including Freedom of Information (FoI), Data Protection (DPA), the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR), and the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations.
