2 THE BAY PROGRAM IS AN EXCELLENT CANDIDATE FOR ALIGNMENT TO THE “FEA” FRAMEWORK 1.Over 100 Partners within the CB Watershed 2.Partners execute the core-mission business functions 3.Culture of the Program has existed for twenty-five years 4.Data support is distributed across the Partnership 5.Jurisdictions have their own mandates 6.Bay Program has no authorization authority 7.Reporting is burdensome 8.Bay Program internal organization not hierarchical 9.Change and upheaval the last 3-4 years, including multiple audits and an executive order 10.Jurisdictional resources declining, both financial and human 11.Program has a high political profile CHALLENGES

3 A simplified method was used to record the baseline configuration based on FEA architectural layers; these layers were then aligned to FEA models for recommendations within the Target EA.

8 Services Layer Services exist throughout the Partnership and have been identified as to: Software application systems that are specific to a business function. Software application components that are common enabling as they are reusable and can span multiple processes. Data-wrapped web services exposing CBP data for reference and consumption by other software applications, tools, and/or users, usually intended for machine-to- machine interaction but can also be used directly by users, depending on the interfaces developed. Technology products leveraged by software application systems or other common enabling services, including networking and telecommunications, data quality, security, collaboration, and discovery. Technology tools which are software applications available for use with minimal support and responsibility from the owner, including customized COTS products or licenses to reusable applications such as web content; geospatial; metadata; modeling and simulation; map; Extract, Transform and Load (ETL); analytics; web service publishing; and various utilities.
