VA Enterprise Architecture

VA EA Vision and Strategy

The vision of the VA Enterprise Architecture (VA EA) is to be the authoritative reference for the requisite integrated strategic, business, and technology information used to make informed decisions across VA. It provides an enterprise view of the VA to those who make decisions that effect change within VA business or IT environments. It will be achieved via an ongoing, collaborative effort between VA’s Administrations, staff offices, and OI&T. Together, these organizations document the current and desired relationships among business processes and IT and plan the transition to the desired state. They also develop business rules, development standards, and decision-making criteria that support the transition to the desired state. VA considers the VA EA as the foundation of its VA EA Program and evolves it based on the eight basic elements identified in the CAF that must be present in an agency EA program – governance, principles, method, tools, standards, use, reporting, and audit – and the strategic drivers that affect its content.

The VA EA products are informed by and support the Department’s business and operational visions, missions, and goals. It will provide information to VA’s capital planning and investment control processes to help guide the investment lifecycle to ensure alignment of technologies with strategic priorities. Using the VA EA in this manner also enables VA to identify areas of redundancy and duplication within business processes and systems thus providing invaluable support to portfolio management.
