By month's end, the Office of Management and Budget wants to unveil a Web site where agencies can post their systems architecture plans.
OMB chief technology officer Norman Lorentz said the site will draw data from the Enterprise Architecture Management System and will include architectures agencies submitted to OMB when it was selecting e-government projects for the Quicksilver program.
'Agencies will be able to access their architectures and update them as needed through this Web site,' Lorentz said recently at the Secure E-Business Executive Summit in Washington. 'They also can construct their plans based on these architectures.' Next, agencies must tie their budget plans to the architectures, he said.
OMB is going to 'join the enterprise architecture database at the hip' with the IT Investment Portfolio System through the Extensible Markup Language, Lorentz said. ITips is an online capital investment and project management system.
