Purpose:    (2QTM)

The President's Management Agenda (PMA) requires all Federal agencies to transform the roles and relationships among people, process, and technology in order to become a citizen-centered government. The PMA emphasizes bringing value and results to citizens, businesses, and government workers by "reducing the burden" and producing measurable improvement.    (2QSS)

The Federal Enterprise Architecture Reference Models are emerging as an important collaborative organizing process to promote the delivery of effective, efficient services. The Data Reference Model seeks to define the data (including sharing, stewardship and provenance) associated with government services. How do communities learn how to organize around the DRM together?    (2QST)
