A national program supported by the several Federal governments, NIEM connects communities of people who share a common need to exchange information in order to advance their missions.

NIEM web-site: www.niem.gov

The NIEM Vision:
The NIEM vision is to be the best practice, by choice, for intergovernmental information exchange. Practitioners at all levels of government and industry will share accurate, complete, timely, and appropriately secured information to enable informed decision making for the greater good. NIEM will provide a common vocabulary to ensure consistency and understanding among domains that may not collaborate traditionally to simplify the process of information sharing between them.

  • Is dynamic. Current cross-domain challenges need to be addressed head-on as we live in a shared-mission age. These challenges and opportunities are too large for any one unit, organization, sector, or nation to take on alone.
  • Offers a common vocabulary and an online repository of information exchange package documents (IEPDs) to support information sharing.
  • Provides technical tools to support development, discovery,dissemination, and reuse of IEPDs.
  • Provides a community of users, tools, common terminology, governance, methodologies, and support that enables enterprise-wide information exchange.
  • Is not limited by national borders. NIEM is used internationally.

NIEM is Not:
  • A standard. NIEM enables the creation of standards.
  • The actual exchange of information. NIEM describes the data that is in motion in the exchange
  • A database. NIEM does not store information.
  • Software.
  • Just for law enforcement and justice. Twelve domains participate in NIEM with additional domains such as human services and agriculture forming.
  • Strictly for federal government. NIEM is used in all 50 states, as well as local and tribal governments and private industry.
  • Intrusive to existing systems. NIEM allows organizations to move information quickly and effectively without rebuilding systems.
