Draft performance plan nearly complete

Robert Haycock

The first version of the performance reference model, one of five segments of the Federal Enterprise Architecture, could be ready in a couple of weeks, said Bob Haycock, manager of the Federal Enterprise Architecture Program Management Office.

Both the long-awaited performance reference model and the second-generation business reference model should be in place for the fiscal 2005 budget cycle, Haycock said.

The performance reference model will let agencies tailor standard performance indicators for specific programs, Haycock said, and trace a 'line of sight' among technologies, business processes and customer results to cut duplication. He spoke last week at the Open Standards/
Open Source for National and Local E-Government Programs conference in Washington.

The data reference model, which is meant to be a set of interoperable standards for defining and describing data, is still 'a work in progress,' Haycock said.
