Digital information and records management capability matrix
Note: A new version of the Digital information and records management capability matrix is currently being drafted to include more data-centric capabilities. It will be published in early 2018 following an exposure draft period.

The matrix can be used with the Australian Public Service Commission Integrated Leadership System and complements the information and knowledge management family in the APS Job Family Model. The capabilities for ICT staff and managers can be used with the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA).
