This process provides an official review of projects for TA consistency and for the purpose of revising portions of the Enterprise Architecture. The TA program office has lead responsibility to facilitate these reviews, while the Architecture Review Board, or designees, reviews these projects and changes to the TA. The TA program office also has responsibility to provide tracking and performance reporting. The TA Review Process is illustrated in Figure 12.
TA reviews are conducted based upon requests from:
- Senior Management
- Project Management Office (PMO)
- Solutions Delivery Management
- Service Delivery Management
- IT Directors
- Infrastructure and Engineering Teams
- Agency Business Management
- IT Plan ARB Profile Notification (based on selected project criteria)
Projects flagged by in the IT Planning Process are candidates for architectural reviews, but the reviews will primarily be conducted based upon recommendations from IT Directors and the ARB, and only if such a review adds value. Projects that are still in initial planning stages are primary candidates for review.
