OMB Context Definition    (2V7F)

The Business Reference Model is a function-driven framework for describing the business operations of the Federal Government independent of the agencies that perform them." The Business Reference Model Version 2.0 provides an organized, hierarchical construct for describing the day-to-day business operations of the Federal government. While many models exist for describing organizations - org charts, location maps, etc. - this model presents the business using a functionally driven approach. The Business Areas (4), Lines of Business (39) and Sub-functions (153) that comprise the BRM represent a departure from previous models of the Federal government that use antiquated, stovepiped, agency-oriented frameworks. The BRM is the first layer of the Federal Enterprise Architecture and it is the main viewpoint for the analysis of data, service components and technology.    (2V7G)
