GAO provided a generic framework for systematically analyzing, designing, and developing open and flexible information system architectures that can be used to meet various information processing needs.

GAO noted that the framework is intended for use by GAO staff in evaluating federal agencies' information systems acquisition and development processes, but could be useful to others as a guide for acquiring or upgrading systems. GAO presented information on the framework elements of: (1) mission and strategy identification; (2) functional identification and analysis; (3) information needs identification and analysis; (4) data needs identification and analysis; (5) applications identification and analysis; (6) logical system definition; (7) alternative architecture identification and analysis; and (8) target architecture selection.
