as the sectors ICT occupation specific capability set. o The SFIA is intended to be used in conjunction with the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework (Capability Framework) to support the full range of workforce management and development activities, including role design and description; recruitment; performance development, learning and development; and strategic workforce planning. The Capability Framework o The Capability Framework applies to all public sector roles, both executive and non-executive. Every role requires, at an appropriate level, all of the capabilities in the Capability Framework, including the Technology Business Enabler and also the People Management capabilities for roles responsible for managing others. Overview of the Capability Framework The Capability Framework: o Describes the core knowledge, skills and abilities required of all NSW Public Sector employees, across all levels and

occupations o Describes in Plain English, both executive and non-executive capabilities o Describes each capability across progressive levels Overview of the Capability Framework The Capability Framework: o Reflects the Government Sector Core values o Allows for complementary occupation or profession specific capability sets to be used in conjunction with the Capability Framework o Does not link capability levels to job classification or grade Capability Groups 16 core capabilities across four groups Four additional capabilities for those roles responsible for managing others Capabilities and

Capability Set Background on the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) The Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) is a globally recognised framework used in over 100 countries The ICT Leadership Group endorsed SFIA as fit for use in the NSW Public Sector in 2012 The Capability Framework and the SFIA has been progressively implemented by a number of agencies via the suite of ICT Sector Role Descriptions

The SFIA at a glance SFIA comprises 97 skills across 6 categories: Strategy and architecture Change and transformation Development and implementation Delivery and operation

Skills and quality Relationships and engagement SFIA levels Each skill entry comprises an overall definition and descriptions of up to seven levels at which the skill might be exercised The seven levels of capability do not apply to all skills, reflecting that some skills are required at entry level, while others kick in at more senior roles. How the Capability Framework

and SFIA work together o The SFIA is a stand-alone Framework; it comprises 97 skills, many of which are effectively described in the Capability Framework. o To avoid duplication, where a skill appears in the SFIA and the Capability Framework, the core capabilities should take precedence. o For example, skills contained in the SFIA that are adequately covered by capabilities from the Capability Framework, include: o IT Strategy and Planning described by the capabilities: Plan and Prioritise, Inspire Direction and Purpose, Work Collaboratively and Communicate Effectively. o Performance Management described by the capabilities: Manage and Develop People and Optimise Business Outcomes. Applying SFIA in role descriptions When does SFIA apply in role descriptions? How many SFIA skills apply?

At what level does SFIA apply? What about other role requirements, does SFIA describe these? The SFIA applies when: the work clearly requires specialised ICT knowledge, skill and/or ability the specialised ICT work occupies a large part of the role the job title is strongly associated with the profession, e.g. Systems Administrator, Enterprise Architect

the Primary Purpose, Key Accountabilities and Key Challenges contained in the role description indicate a need for ICT capabilities for successful performance of the role Generally a small subset of capabilities will apply Most roles will require between 3 5 SFIA skills The spread of capability levels for a role should not generally exceed three SFIA levels The levels in SFIA do not correspond directly to classifications or grades

SFIA will generally only apply to roles above entry level but below agency head A SFIA Capability Comparison Guide is available that provides an indication of the number of SFIA capability levels (as a range) and an outline of the number of focus capabilities (as a range) at each Clerk Grade/Public Service Senior Executive Band SFIA describes behaviours, not qualifications. If a qualification, professional membership or certification for a particular product or technology is an essential requirement for the role, this remains a prerequisite for employment and should be reflected in the Essential Requirements section of the role description Accessing SFIA o The SFIA Framework can be accessed via the SFIA Foundation website.
