Organisational information requirements OIR
Organisational Information Requirements describe the information required by an organisation for asset management systems and other organisational functions. That is, they are organisational-level information requirements rather than asset-level or project-level information requirements. Activities that might help define Organisational Information Requirements are described in Annex A of PAS 1192-3.
Where a contract is awarded for specific asset management activities, or where instructions are given to an in-house team for asset management activities, task-specific Asset Information Requirements (AIR) should be prepared. These are generated based on the Organisational Information Requirements.
Where there are significant capital works, project-specific Employer's Information Requirements (EIR) will be required, as described in PAS 1192:2 2013 Specification for information management for the capital/delivery phase of construction projects using building information modelling. In this case the Asset Information Requirements will help inform the Employer's Information Requirements and will help define the plain language questions that the employer asks at key employer's decision points to assess whether the project is developing satisfactorily.
