Departments: Knowledge Management

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) how many knowledge managers are employed by his Department; what their total remuneration is; how many vacancies for knowledge manager positions there are in his Department; what the salary range is of posts which are vacant; and if he will make a statement; (127458)

(2) how much his Department spent on knowledge management in (a) 2005-06 and (b) 2006-07; what the planned expenditure is in 2007-08; and if he will make a statement.

Knowledge management involves the improvement of organisational record-keeping, filing systems and processes, and is especially important in efficiently meeting the demands of the Freedom of Information Act and managing the transition to full electronic data storage and management. The Treasury currently employs three individuals on this type of work, one on a part-time basis, and is seeking to recruit a further two individuals. As advertised, the salary ranges for these posts are £40,039 to £48,589.
