Agencies told to assess EA capabilities

The Office of Management and Budget's Federal Enterprise Architecture Program Management Office last week released an assessment tool for agencies to evaluate their enterprise architectures, set baselines and address problems.

The EA Assessment Framework Version 1.0 will let agencies rate the capability of their modernization blueprints. OMB said the framework complements the General Accounting Office's EA Management Maturity Framework. OMB wants agencies to rate their EAs on a scale of 0 to 5 in four areas:
  • Managing changes in architectural and strategic direction

  • Ensuring standard interfaces, interoperability and connectivity

  • Integrating IT as defined by the Technical Reference Model

  • Ensuring alignment with the agency's strategic goals.


  • 2020 Government Innovation Awards
    Government Innovation Awards -

    21 Public Sector Innovation award winners

    These projects at the federal, state and local levels show just how transformative government IT can be.

  • Federal 100 Awards
