The Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA)
E-Government represents a new role for Information Technology (IT) in the Federal Government
The E-Government Initiative is Focused on Results that Matter to the Citizen / Customer
The Administration’s Citizen-Centered E-Strategy Integrates With Web-trends
What key trends is the Government tracking?
So what are Web Services in the Federal Government?
What key opportunities are available through use of Web Services?
There are several fundamentals that will contribute to the success of Web Services across the Government
Where is the Federal Government heading… and how do we get there?
The FEA is being constructed through a collection of inter-related “reference models” designed to facilitate cross-agency collaboration, and horizontal / vertical information sharing
The FEA Business Reference Model (BRM) is a function-driven framework for describing the Lines of Business performed by the Federal Government independent of the Agencies that perform them
The BRM, in conjunction with Web Services, can assist in streamlining and connecting multiple business lines across the Federal Government
The FEA Technical Reference Model (TRM) provides a robust and effective foundation to support the reuse, delivery, exchange, and construction of service components and Web Services
The FEA Data Reference Model (DRM) is envisioned to support the classification of data across horizontal and vertical business areas / functions
Collectively, the FEA Reference Models can be leveraged to support the creation and integration of cross-agency Service Components and begin to create the foundation for the effective use and implementation of Web Services
The Federal Government has established multiple working groups, leadership forums, and committee’s to manage this “game changing” technology
Specifically, the Federal CIO Council has reorganized its Architecture and Infrastructure Committee (AIC) to include a group dedicated to the championing of XML and Web Service initiatives

In addition, there are several challenges and obstacle the Federal Government must consider / overcome
The Federal Government has (and is) piloting multiple projects that leverage XML and Web Service technologies…
