Metadata

Joined-up government needs joined-up information systems. The e-Government Metadata Standard (e-GMS) lays down the elements, refinements and encoding schemes to be used by government officers when creating metadata for their information resources or when designing search systems for information systems. The e-GMS forms part of the e-GIF.

The e-GMS is required to ensure maximum consistency of metadata across public sector organisations.
The Metadata FAQ section may also be helpful.

Key documents relating to the e-GMS can be found below.
