What is NIEM?


National Information Exchange Model (NIEM)
The National Information Exchange Model (NIEM), a partnership of the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, is a community-driven, standards-based approach to exchanging information.

NIEM connects communities of people who share a common need to exchange information in order to advance their mission. It allows systems to speak to each other, even if they have never spoken before. NIEM ensures that information is well-understood and carries the same consistent meaning across various communities, allowing interoperability to occur. With NIEM, you only need to know two languages—your own and NIEM.


NIEM is driven by the community, for the community.  NIEM brings together diverse communities that collectively leverage tools, processes, and technologies to increase efficiencies and improve decision-making.

NIEM makes it possible for organizations to share critical data; as a result, people are empowered to make informed decisions that improve efficiency and help organizations advance their missions.

NIEM is not a software program, database, network, or computer system.


NIEM is designed to facilitate the creation of automated enterprise-wide information exchanges which can be uniformly developed, centrally maintained, quickly identified and discovered, and efficiently reused. The result is more efficient and expansive information sharing between agencies and jurisdictions; more cost-effective development and deployment of information systems; improved operations; better quality decision making as a result of more timely, accurate, and complete information; and, as a consequence, enhanced public safety and homeland security.
