Whole of Government (WoG) Information Definitions Index

Owner Organisation:ATO
Description: The Whole of Government (WoG) Information Definitions Index is a whole of government and industry listing of current, published standards, dictionaries, glossaries, taxonomies and classifications used across government for defining financial, demographic, welfare and health data. The intent of this index is to provide a virtual federated taxonomy of data terms that, as it is established and added to, will create and promote a basis for shared understanding of data and ultimately facilitate use and re-use of data within and across government agencies. The definitions included in each indexed item are acknowledged as the government standard and are to be used and referred to as such unless a different definition is prescribed in legislation. As a first principle, any new data definition (taxonomy, dictionary, classification schema or equivalent), should defer to these standards. This approach was endorsed by the Deputy Secretaries Efficiency Working Group in August 2014. A brief description of each standard (or taxonomy, dictionary or classification) is provided, with a hyperlink to a more detailed description and link to the actual item. Email WoG-InformationDefinitions@ato.gov.au for further information.
