The modelling of organisation's competency has been researched during the last decades. One line of this research has focused on addressing collaborative networks of organisations. Virtual organisations breeding environments (VBEs), as the base for dynamic formation of virtual organisations (VOs), are particularly in need of strong management of their organisations' competencies. Many large first generation VBEs fail due to their inability to dynamically process and analyse information about their member organisations and particularly processing their members' competencies needed for dynamic and agile VO configuration. This article introduces the '4C-model' (capabilities + capacities + costs + conspicuities) developed to comprehensively specify competencies of VBE member organisations. As such, the 4C-model directly addresses and promotes efficiency in VO formation, and thus increases organisations' involvement in potential virtual organisations. The article further addresses the development of an ontology for the competency model.
