US Government Working Group's

Federal Transition Framework Metamodel Subgroup

FTF Metamodel Working Group
    C0-Chair:    Vacant



The Federal Transition Framework Metamodel Subgroup was chartered under the US Government Working Group by the Government Domain Task Force during its plenary at the OMG TC Meeting in Anaheim CA, 26 September 2006. The working group will address the particular needs of defining and refining the Federal Transition Framework in collaboration with the President's Office of Management and Budget.

The FTF is being taken care of by the FTF Revision Task Force. This subgroup will likely be dissolved soon. It's mission will likely be assumed by our new working group, OMB/OMG Agenda Working Group. (page to be posted soon)
