Just learned of new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) Report documenting the significant progress of Enterprise Architecture and IT Governance program at the U.S. Coast Guard, which I led up to and during the majority of the audit.
I am pleased at the recognized progress and at the terrific work that my team accomplished there--I am very proud of all of them!
Of course, there is more work to be done, but the right EA infrastructure has been put in place to accomplish the goals and objectives set out.
Here is the link to the report: http://sites.google.com/site/thetotalcio/Home/links/EAOIGReport-July2009.pdf?attredirects=0
"The Coast Guard has made progress in developing its enterprise architecture by defining its enterprise architecture framework [User-centric EA] in alignment with both federal and DHS architectures. In addition, its enterprise architecture is aligned with the Coast Guard's IT strategy. These achievements have been possible because of executive support for the enterprise architecture effort."
