IRM Resources Overview
The Information Resources Manager (IRM) oversees the acquisition and use of information technology within a state agency or university. The IRM ensures that all information resources are acquired appropriately, implemented effectively, and comply with regulations and agency policies.
The IRM must be part of the agency's executive management and report directly to a person with a title functionally equivalent to executive director or deputy executive director. If an agency does not designate an IRM, the role defaults to the agency’s executive director, who is then responsible for executing the duties and requirements, including continuing education, of an IRM.
The IRM Continuing Education Requirements were developed to assist IRMs in building the skill sets necessary to meet their demanding responsibilities. Continuing education enhances the ability of IRMs to meet the challenges of rapidly changing technology and to effectively utilize information resources within their agencies.
