Your Aug. 1 article, "States
open toolkit, talks for EA," is an excellent example of the cooperation
that can happen among governmental entities. In my opinion, federal-state
data linkage is critical to a wider range of situations than law enforcement,
as in the present.
Opening the federal enterprise architecture structure and expanding
the segments to include state and local data links would go a long way to
interoperability and do so at significantly less cost.
The National Association of State Chief Information Officers has taken
a great step forward. I hope that the federal community will respond with
