CARDIO is a benchmarking tool for data management strategy development, typically applied at the departmental or research group level.

The Data Asset Framework (formerly the Data Audit Framework) provides organisations with the means to identify, locate, describe and assess how they are managing their research data assets.

DRAMBORA (Digital Repository Audit Method Based On Risk Assessment) originated as a paper-based methodology for helping repository managers to develop a documented understanding of the risks they face, expressed in terms of probability and potential impact.

The Self-Assessment Tool is an online project-tracking structure that guides users through a series of questions designed to quantify the degree that a digital repository is ‘embedded’ within its institution.

RMCAS is an assessment tool for organisations wishing to map their current records management infrastructure against community best-practice.
