Government Knowledge and Information Management profession choose comaea to build skills frameworks



The Government KIM (GKIM) profession is one of the Civil Service Professions. It is made up of civil servants who curate knowledge and manage information in all its forms - assets that critically underpin the work of government.


GKIM professionals work in a range of disciplines, including information rights (Data Protection, Freedom of Information, Environmental Information Regulations), records management, information management, librarianship, knowledge management, information architecture and governance. They work in central Government departments, Government Agencies and Arm’s Length Bodies, and their careers may span many different disciplines and organisations.


As part of the GKIM strategy for supporting the growing diversity of professionals, comaea has been chosen to help develop new competency frameworks which could roll out to 2500 GKIM professionals around the UK Government.


The world-leading comaea competency management system will be used to support the creation and refining of skills frameworks across the six disciplines before rolling out to GKIM professionals across government. Discipline leads and project teams will be able to use the simple administration, competency library, and role profiling functions in comaea to build proof-of-concept models and share them quickly and easily amongst the pilot groups before committing to the wider rollout. This minimises risk and helps gain buy in from users.


Comaea UK Managing Director, Tony Martin, commented on the contract award "Being able to support GKIM with this exciting project is testament to the hard work and professionalism of the comaea team in the UK and builds on our developing solutions across the wider government professions and departments. Comaea continues to offer a great value service that can be configured for the varying needs of each government organisation, and this project demonstrates the value of the comaea competency management system in the early part of competency framework and career pathway design."
