Thanks for the heads up Brand.
Sorry for the late response, I had my home account subscribed and have now updated my GSA account. Yes, please include me in the COSMO working group, though you'll find that I lean more towards information flow and knowledge kinematics than monolithic structures. ;-)
Yes, I'd be happy to answer any FEA-RMO questions and we here in GSA OCIO are excited to support the ongoing interest in FEA-RMO. As Brand explained below, there's information on FEA-RMO's background, purpose, and underlying principles here: http://colab.cim3.net/file/work/SICoP/project/fea-rmo/fea-rmo.html and FEA-RMO is freely available under our OSERA Open Source Agreement.
As suggested by Ralph Hodgson and Jim Hendler we now use this URL instead of the prior zip file download. Please consider this URL the authoritative reference to FEA-RMO.
Briefly, FEA-RMO is a domain specific, parsimonious ontology (see Occam's principle of parsimony ) that directly translates the natural language reference models into executable artifacts. By establishing parsimony as a principle, concepts and properties that made it into FEA-RMO had to come directly from the reference models.
It's worth reading TopQuadrant's report ( http://www.topquadrant.com/documents/TQFEARMO.pdf ) to better understand FEA-RMO. Our current results are driven by the four mandatory use cases we defined in the project plan: Semantic Detective, Shared Concept, Line of Sight, and Legislative and Best Practice Drivers. The patterns section is especially informative.
Once you've had a chance to browse FEA-RMO feel free to post any questions, and I'd be happy to answer.
All question on the FEA-RMO should be directed to Rick Murphy (I am
cc:ing him on this email response) at the GSA who produced and hosts
this ontology per the bottom of the Web page at
also presented on the FEA-RMO at the October 5th ONTAC WG Meeting.

PM Ontology (FEA-RMO)
As far as I know, the OWL version of the FEA-RMO reachable from that
site is the only version.
In the version I have, I have "Outcome" but not "StrategicOutcome"
Is the latter in some version that you have seen?

Subject: [ontac-forum] A question on the Federal Enterprise
ArchitectureReference Model Ontology (FEA-RMO)
The Federal Enterprise Architecture Reference Model Ontology
(FEA-RMO) has been mentioned several times and I believe that a
version is on the wiki at
I wanted to be sure that this is one of the ontologies that we
are discussing as a starting point and something that we can use
as examples in our discussion.
For example are concepts like “Strategic Outcomes” in the
Ontology as sub-types of a top-level (for this the FEA Ontology)
of “Outcome” .?
Does the FEA Ontology show BRM links to SRM using concepts
like“customerProtection” “hasPerformance” “realizedWith”?
I would be interested in these concepts but more interested in one
that contains the entities of architectures reported in the FEA
reference model for domains such as healthcare and human
resources, but in any case I'd like to see the taxonomic structure
of whatever FEA ontology we are using as input and base work.
