The Open IT Policy Project (OITPP) is an community-driven resource for information governance. This project is built by and for professionals in IT, compliance, audit, legal, and other roles responsible for the definition, alignment, and/or enforcement of information use and control.

The OITPP includes policies, procedures, standards, and forms. These resources are provided as text templates, designed to be easily customized for your own environment  OITPP templates are free resources, open to both use and improvement by interested professionals. Everyone can view and print the templates. T2P members may also edit existing templates and add new ones.

The value of the OITPP lies both in its knowledge content and in the ability of of professionals like you to continually increase its usefulness. You don't have to be an “expert” to strengthen the OITPP: if you know through experience—or even just common sense—how to make this governance guidance more useful, please pitch in.

Together we make governance better
