The University of the Sunshine Coast created an information management unit in 2014 from a number of separate records management and other information related roles. The unit’s purpose was to provide coordinated, holistic information management advice and services to University staff. The intent was to leverage existing networks, avoid duplication of effort and focus on value rather than compliance. This presentation outlines the rationale for the unit’s creation, the implications for staff roles, the effects on business processes and services, and the positive impacts the unit has had on organizational planning and staff behavior.
