OMB To Release Data Model
By the end of July OMB hopes to release the Data Reference Model, which is the final piece to the Federal Enterprise Architecture. The model should improve agencies ability to collect and use data. The model has taken over two years to complete, and OMB hopes to have the system in place in time for calculations of the 2006 budget process.
“We want to make sure when the model is released, no matter who you are, you will be able to read it and understand exactly what we are talking about as far as data that we are collecting as we go forward.”
“With the release of the DRM, we intend to specifically talk about data and how it relates to the [A-16] circular so that the agencies will know how to report those investments in to us.” “We will be able to get great visibility into [the data] and be able to promote partnerships between agencies as well as through state and local governments.”
