The Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) provides a common framework to assist agencies in better managing their information resources to improve mission performance. The FEA is comprised of five reference models:

  • Business Reference Model (BRM);
  • Performance Reference Model (PRM);
  • Service Component Reference Model (SRM);
  • Technical Reference Model (TRM); and
  • Data Reference Model (DRM).

While the FEA reference models have been completed, they are to be updated in the spring, if changes are needed, to support the annual budget process and to ensure they continue to serve as effective tools for IT resource management. To improve the integration of the reference models and to streamline delivery of information to agencies, a Consolidated Reference Model (CRM) document combining the reference models into a single document is being developed and will be released by June.

The purpose of this document is to highlight the changes made to the reference models since the fiscal year 2006 (FY06) budget process. Although there were minor edits to the reference models for the FY06 budget process, new versions of the reference models were not released. Instead a document depicting the changes was provided to agencies as they prepared their budget submissions. The reference model changes outlined in this document are in support of the fiscal year 2007 (FY07) capital planning and budget process and should be reflected in agencies' submissions to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
