Border Information Flow Architecture (BIFA)


Presentation objectives

Presentation Objectives

  • Provide TBWG members an update on Architecture development

  • Identify actions and next steps to complete, market, and use the Architecture

  • Future linkages between BIFA and TBWG


Bifa overview

BIFA OVERVIEW

  • A framework for promoting institutional agreement and technical integration for the implementation of ITS projects or other technology solutions at major land border crossings

  • Engage border stakeholders to identify opportunities for coordination and information sharing to improve security and efficiency at ports of entry


Focus and objectives of the initiative

Focus and Objectives of the Initiative

  • Identify technologies and agencies that use technologies at or near the border

  • Identify priorities of these various agencies

  • Promote interoperability of technologies

  • Reduce technology investment cost

  • Enhance information exchange, coordination and communication


Bifa architecture development process where are we and how did we get here

BIFA Architecture Development Process Where Are We and How Did We Get Here?

  • Border Information Flow Architecture Working Group (BIFAWG) established under TBWG

    • Instrumental in establishing needs and processes to be addressed in architecture

    • Participated in multiple teleconferences to develop strategy to create architecture

  • BIFAWG Steering Committee

    • Small subset of BIFAWG representative of major stakeholder groups.

    • Participated in Face-to-Face Workshop in March 2005 to develop initial “draft” Architecture

    • Participated in Workshop #2 in August 2005 to review draft architecture and create Final BIFA


Bifa architecture development process where are we and how did we get here1

BIFA Architecture Development Process Where Are We and How Did We Get Here?

  • Near final product available today and facets will be presented to TBWG

    • Largely based on Canadian and US ITS Architectures but includes unique border services not contained in either US or Canadian architectures

  • Developed as a “generic” architecture


What does generic mean

What does “generic” mean?

  • Architecture contains representative elements, services, etc.

  • Element example:

    • State DOT TMC

      (vs VTrans Statewide TOC)


Scope of bifa

Scope of BIFA

  • Geographic Scope

    • Region covering both sides of US Canada border

    • Representative of border areas from

      • British Columbia/Washington to Maine/New Brunswick
