OMB releases EA Assessment

The Office of Management and Budget has the second version of its Enterprise Architecture Assessment Framework. Agencies have until Feb. 28 to submit their EA materials under this guideline, according to a memo issued by Richard Burk, director of the Federal Enterprise Architecture Program Management Office.

Last year, OMB announced it would evaluate how well agencies complete and utilize their EAs to save money, improve services and meet their missions overall. OMB will use this assessment to evaluate agency EAs as part of the second quarter 2006. President's Management Agenda Scorecard.

Version 2.0 of the assessment framework supersedes Version 1.5, published last year. While Version 1.5 focused on gauging how well agencies completed their baseline EAs, Version 2 looks at how well an agency actually uses its EA, and what results the agency gets from the EA.
