What happened to the published skill matrix?

I asked the Minister/department this questionand replied that recent advertisements had skill profiles. Which you can see here

Although these call for expression of interest advertise vacancies for most of the boards seats its not for all of them.

I didn't think listing the skills that are being sought for the vacancies being advertised is a skill matrix, a skill matrix is listing the skills requirements of the entire board, and showing where there may be skill gaps.
