National Information Exchange Model

###NIEM—the National Information Exchange Model—is a community-driven, standards-based approach to exchanging information.

NIEM is a common vocabulary that enables efficient information exchange across diverse public and private organizations. Rather than starting from scratch, NIEM can save time, resources, and money by providing consistent, reusable data terms and definitions, and repeatable processes.

NIEM allows all kinds of organizations to connect with each other and focus on what matters most – solving problems, reducing risks, and advancing even the most complex missions. Today all 50 states and many federal agencies are using (at varying levels of maturity) or considering using NIEM. The benefits of NIEM have also extended to Europe, the Americas, Australia, and Asia.
