How the Mint uses enterprise architecture

U.S. Mint officials are developing several tools based on their enterprise architecture to

help the agency's business units have better control over their information technology

investments.

A portfolio management tool was scheduled to be in place by December 2003, first for the business units and then for the support offices within the agency.

A baseline architecture view of existing programs and investments has been completed.

A tool for developing and reporting business cases for the annual budget submission to the Office of Management and Budget will be ready in March or April.

A target architecture will be completed by September.

The first phase of the architecture will be implemented in December.
