The Data Standard for Road Management and Investment provides road agencies and their suppliers, in Australia and New Zealand, with a specification for the data that supports common operational activities.

The Data Standard also provides road network funding agencies with a specification to inform structure of reports and submissions requested from road agencies, to enable more equitable evidence‑based investment decision making. Specifically, the Standard establishes a common understanding of the meaning or semantics of the data, to ensure appropriate use and interpretation of the data by its stakeholders.

The Standard also recognises various levels of sophistication in inventory and asset planning practice and provides relevant data item details in this regard. Accordingly, the Standard will benefit any road industry stakeholder who utilises data for road research, policy development, expenditure comparisons, funding approvals, supporting national reforms, national reporting, innovation, shared services, and inter-organisation communications.
