  OMG Government Domain Task Force Workshop

Tuesday & Wednesday, July 14-15, 2009

This is a two-day workshop focused on two of the principal areas of standards activities involving industry and government collaboration in the Government Task Force. 

The objectives of the Government DTF Workshop are twofold:

  • Inform the government community of the activities of the OMG in collaboration with the government sector.
  • Receive feedback to guide its activities and roadmap of planned activities.

The Workshop will focus on the two areas of greatest activity, spending one day on each.

OMB/OMG Collaboration Agenda
The President’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has been working with the OMG for several years. The OMB brought the Federal Transition Framework to the OMG and successfully defined an interchange standard using OMG's Model Driven Architecture approach. Over the last year the collaboration has turned to the Metamodel for Federal Segment Architecture (MFSA). MFSA originally was begun to support the Federal Segment Architecture Reporting Template; however, it became clear that a larger view is necessary. There are overlapping semantics in a number of areas in the OMB: Segment Architecture, Federal Transition Framework, OMB 300, Exhibit 53, and the Consolidated Reference Models. These pieces have been defined separately and differences in interpretations and details have occurred. This effort is intended to bring all of these pieces under a single semantic umbrella where they overlap.

Electronic Records Management Services
An Interagency Project Team of 19 Federal Agencies facilitated by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) published “Functional Requirements, Attributes, and Unified Modeling Language Class Diagrams for Records, Management Services, September 7, 2006.” NARA subsequently took these requirements to the OMG to serve as the basis for a Records Management Services specification. During the last week of March 2009, the OMG approved the Alpha version of that standard. This specification will be brought through Beta to Formal V1.0 status using OMG's Community Consensus Process. However, NARA, the OMG and other agencies believe this standard to be a beginning. It has a road map of additional specifications to provide functionality not addressed in this initial specification.
