NIEM—the National Information Exchange Model—is a community-driven, government-wide, standards-based approach to exchanging information.
NIEM may sound complex, but the premise of it is simple:
NIEM connects communities of people who share a common need to exchange information in order to advance their mission.
Used in all 50 states and internationally, NIEM is available to everyone. It is a consistent starting point—which includes a data model, governance, training, tools, technical support services, and an active community—that assists users in adopting a standards-based approach to exchanging data.
When it matters most—protecting citizens, responding to disasters, monitoring prescription drug abuse, identifying welfare assistance eligibility, or providing support services to children and families—NIEM provides quick access to accurate, complete, and actionable information.
