Foreword Information Technology Authority (ITA) is delighted to present a quick glance of the Oman eGovernment Architecture Framework (OeGAF) which will be of use for everyone involved in IT projects. In particular, we feel this quick glance would be useful for business and technical colleagues who require quick overview of OeGAF before delving into the details that the full specification provides. It explains the What, Who, Why, Where, When and How of the enterprise and IT architecture using OeGAF Specifications. As you are aware by now that one of the key objectives of ITA is to enhance government services to achieve higher level of citizen/ customer satisfaction by: 1. Providing timely and secure access to essential information, 2. Enabling seamless integration of Government services, and 3. Improving the efficiency of service delivery. To achieve the above objective, ITA has established the “Oman eGovernance Framework” which is a set of architectural standards, best practices and process management systems. The “Oman eGovernance Framework” consists of the following building blocks: 1. Oman e-Government Architecture Framework (OeGAF) 2. Process Management Systems 3. Standards Working Groups 4. Standards Management Process 5. Standards/Guidelines Resource Library.  Starting from this blueprint, the working group members have developed the “Oman eGovernment Architecture Framework” – also known in short as “OeGAF” that will be published on the ITA website. The Oman eGovernment Architecture Framework (OeGAF) which is the technology component of Oman eGovernance Framework is a structured framework that guides the design, construction, deployment and management of distributed Information Systems across the various Government Agencies. OeGAF contains the principles, strategies and building blocks that support the goals of the government. The architecture can direct the selection, use and operation of technologies needed to support government business requirements and delivery of services. The architecture reduces the time and cost of deploying applications, while making it easier to integrate information and services. OeGAF helps the Government to act as an “Integrated Enterprise” and manage IT as a strategic investment.
