Quality Framework for Information ManagementThe Quality Framework (Kwaliteitsraamwerk Informatievoorziening) is an initiative of the Dutch government to harmonize the job descriptions of ICT related professions in the Dutch public sector.
Use of e-CF Where applicable the e-CF is used in the Quality Framework as a reference framework for identifying eSkills.
Use of ICT-Profiles The role descriptions in the Quality Framework for Information Management bare some similarity to the European ICT-Profiles but haven’t been used as they were not available at the time.
