SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill, Sept. 22, 2006 – U.S. Transportation Command received a Leadership in Government Transformation award from the E-Gov Institute Sept. 16 for Enterprise Architecture work in support of the expanded Distribution Process Owner mission.
The award recognizes best practices in developing and implementing successful Enterprise Architectures.
It was accepted by Steve Pierson, Command, Control, Computer and Communications Directorate, U.S. Transportation Command, in a ceremony at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C.
According to Pierson, Federal agencies are required to build architectures to better plan for capabilities and technology investments while ensuring agency programs receive funding.
Through Office of Management and Budget’s Federal Enterprise Architecture and Department of Defense’s Business Enterprise Architecture, this supply chain–based framework known as the Joint Deployment and Distribution Architecture is designed to create greater efficiencies and streamline inter-agency collaboration and communication.
“The latest challenge in expanding agency-based enterprise architectures is attempting to understand broader relationships and interdependencies among partnering agencies,” Pierson said.
“U.S. Transportation Command has successfully pioneered an approach that has effectively aligned interdependent yet disparate enterprise architectures, enabling a holistic view of end-to-end scenarios, portfolios, and organizations,” he noted.
