OMB issues draft changes to federal EA

The Office of Management and Budget has given agencies a jump-start in compiling their fiscal 2007 budget requests.

The Federal Enterprise Architecture Program Management Office late last month outlined new subfunctions for the health and human resources business lines, and clarified definitions for two subfunctions and three new lines of business.

The draft FEA Reference Model Revision summary also includes clarifications for the Service and Performance reference models. Officials said they did not update the Technical Reference Model; an interagency task force is updating the Data Reference Model.

'The purpose of this document is to highlight the changes made to the reference models since the fiscal year 2006 budget process,' the document said. 'The reference model changes outlined in this document are in support of the 2007 capital planning and budget process and should be reflected in agencies' submissions to OMB.'

Under HR, FEAPMO officials added eight new subfunctions and deleted 14. The new subfunctions include HR strategy, staff acquisition, organization and position management and employee relations.

Under the health line of business, OMB added four new subfunctions and deleted four. The new ones include population health management and consumer safety, health care administration, health care delivery services, and health care research and practitioner education.

The new lines of business under the BRM are:


  • National resources, which includes conservation planning, land management, and national park and monument tourism


  • Administrative management, which includes day-to-day management and maintenance of the internal infrastructure, including physical security protection


  • Information and technology management, which includes the coordination of resources and systems required to support or provide a service.
