The recognised officer responsible for implementing and maintaining information assets according to the rules set by the owner to ensure proper quality, security, integrity, correctness, consistency, privacy, confidentiality and accessibility.

The DG of Queensland Transport assigns an Executive Director as being responsible for Customer data classified according to their Enterprise Architecture Contextual Information Model.
