Burk joins ICF

Richard Burk, former chief architect and manager of the federal enterprise architecture program at the Office of Management and Budget, has joined ICF International. He will assist ICF’s efforts to expand the application of enterprise architecture throughout the government, the company announced today.

At OMB, Burk led efforts to develop a standard, governmentwide business and technology framework to align federal information technology investments to improve government services. The framework has been adopted by most federal agencies, several state governments and some foreign governments.

Before joining OMB, Burk concluded his 30-year career at the Housing and Urban Development Department as the chief enterprise architect responsible for development and delivery of the agency’s enterprise architecture and data management practices and strategic planning process.

Last year, Burk was president of the Association for Federal Information Resources Management, a government/industry organization dedicated to improving federal information management through education and internships.
