OMB Works on New Architecture GuideClick to read article.
OMB is drafting new guildlines to give agencies the ability to measure the effectiveness of their enterprise architectures. The final guidelines are expected to be released for comment by mid-March.
“The guide will differ from GAO’s EA Framework, [OMB chief architect Bob Haycock] said. “GAO’s [guide] is more process based and looks at the structure of the agency,” Haycock said. “We want to look at the actual EA and focus on how it is used.”
“We’ve done a lot of work on the DRM to make sure it links with the other reference models and how to create data exchanges and integration processes,” he said. “We think we have an approach that will work.”
