DON Knowledge Management/ Information Management/ Information Technology career areas

Abstract: On 16 August 2000, the Department of the Navy (DON) Chief Information Officer, Mr. Dan Porter signed a Memorandum for Distribution releasing the final draft of the Department of Navy Civilian Career Path Guide for Management of Technology, Information, and Knowledge. The final version will be released in early 2001, and will be converted to a Web-based tool.
It is inevitable that many future Information Technology (IT)-related jobs will be better suited to the private sector, the DON must ensure that it maintains a core workforce, skilled in the various Knowledge Management (KM), Information Management (IM), and Information Technology (IT) disciplines of strategic value to the DON. The Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996 requires the CIO to “develop strategies and specific plans for hiring, training, and professional development” to meet agency requirements. The Career Path Guide (CPG), released in August 2000, will assist our employees in developing into managers and leaders capable of handling the future business of the DON.
