OMB wants to expand Core.gov

The Office of Management and Budget is trying to make the Core.gov portal more like a community of interest.

Dick Burk, OMB's chief architect, asked the Chief Architects Forum in an Aug. 6 memo for suggestions on how to set up Core.gov to 'foster horizontal communication among enterprise architects.' They will use the site to share concepts, methods, solutions and products that addresses similar enterprise architecture challenges.

Core.gov, which began in March 2004, provides a collaboration environment for component development, registration and reuse.

Burk asked the architects to review plans and products that would be included in the site and an approach to reviewing products for future inclusion. The memo also suggests initial content categories, such as sample documents, methodologies and governance processes.

Chief architects were to have submitted suggestions to OMB by today about the plan.

'By sharing our collective experience and collaborating within the [enterprise architecture] community we can improve the quality and utility of our agency enterprise architectures and reduce their cost by widely adopting practices and products proven to work,' Burk wrote.

The architects forum would review and maintain the contents of the site.

Core.gov's new features should be ready by early September, according to the memo's action plan and milestones.
