Achieved Phase 2019

Develop a data governance framework to manage NT Government data

Improving Government Services


Develop a data governance framework to for NT Government data in consultation with stakeholders across government.


Data governance describes the people, processes and information technology required to apply consistent and proper handling of data across government.

The data governance framework will establish roles and responsibilities for maintaining the quality, security and appropriate use of the data.

The framework will specify how the requirements for data governance operate across the NT Government; clearly set out the Government’s expectations of agencies; outline good practice for data governance and assist NT Government agencies where needed to adopt suitable practices.

The data governance framework is a key element in the related action to develop a data sharing legislative and policy framework.


The Framework will provide the basis to increase the value of data for decision making and policy development, reduce the risks of inappropriate or unauthorised use and facilitate data sharing and advanced analytics.
