n Journal of Public Administration - Knowledge management in the South African legislative sector

Special issue 1
  • ISSN : 0036-0767



Knowledge is not easily measured or audited. As such, organisations have to manage knowledge effectively to take full advantage of the skills, experience and expertise inherent in their systems and structures as well as the tacit knowledge that their employees possess. Knowledge management should not be confined to education and research institutions only. Government departments, legislatures, public entities and agencies deal with invaluable information and knowledge that needs to be systematically packaged and well preserved.This article sets out to present an overview of knowledge management in the South African legislative sector, with special reference to the Gauteng Provincial Legislature. In this article, the authors argue that the Gauteng Provincial Legislature has registered considerable progress in the field of knowledge management. It has set a precedent for other legislatures (including the National Parliament) to effectively embrace knowledge management in their quest for improving their efforts to carry out their constitutional mandates.
