eda program vision and goals epa s approach to the program
EDA Program Vision and GoalsEPA’s approach to the program

EPA has clearly defined its vision and goals for the EDA program, which serve as guiding principles influencing all aspects of the program

  • EPA’s EDA program vision:

The EDA program seeks to maximize the value of enterprise data assets by improving accessibility, reusability, reliability, and overall quality.

Through its defined governance framework and operational model, the EDA program will publish guidance and will leverage Data Stewards throughout the Agency to function as a proactive enterprise service organization. The EDA program will affect change by helping to solve critical data management issues and challenges facing EPA’s programs and their core data partners.

  • Key Points of emphasis:
    • Maximizing value
    • Improving access
    • Supporting reuse
    • Ensuring data is reliable
    • Optimizing quality

Business drivers influencing the EDA Program

  • The Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) increased the importance of aligning initiatives with cross-agency missions and strategic goals
  • Collaborative partners have a significant influence on data management and information sharing
    • Bi-directional dependence on data provided by/to external collaborators from various data sources

The DRM can accelerate enterprise and joint action around new opportunities afforded by standardized approaches for accomplishing goals

The EDA program is designed to be highly stakeholder focused, with specific attention paid to interactions and engagement at all levels of the Agency

governance model the role of the dac
Governance ModelThe Role of the DAC

The EDA program is governed by the Data Architecture Committee (DAC)

  • The Data Architecture Committee (DAC) serves as the steering committee and decision making body for all data-related matters within the Agency
  • Data Stewards
  • CPIC
  • Procurement
  • System Design
  • Obtain QIC approval
  • Distribute decisions to Data Stewards
  • Develop Policy
  • Design Guidance
key roles and responsibilities data stewards
Key Roles and ResponsibilitiesData Stewards

Data Stewards play an integral role in the program as liaisons from each of the program offices and cross-cutting initiatives

  • Tacticians. Work at the operational and tactical levels
  • Representatives. Serve as liaisons between each program offices/initiative areas and the DAC
  • Communicators. Provide feedback and best practices from the program offices and initiatives to the DAC for incorporation in policies, guidance
  • Collaborators. Serve as active members of the Data Community of Interest (COI) for all Data Stewards
    • Leverage group successes and support the promulgation of best practices
    • Discuss issues and concerns that are relevant to the data architecture community – inform the DAC of these issues

The Chief Data Architect leads and provides oversight to EDA

program operations by serving on the DAC and engaging with

various stakeholder segments

  • Leader. Drives EDA program progress through the DAC
  • Facilitator. Encourages collaboration among Data Stewards and interaction with other agency stakeholders
  • Coordinator. Establishes strong working relationships with external stakeholders to coordinate and share best practices

There are several other key stakeholder groups who play an integral

part in the success of the EDA program

key roles and responsibilities establishing a community of interest
Key Roles and ResponsibilitiesEstablishing a Community of Interest

The Data Architecture Community of Interest (COI) is an important forum for Data Stewards to meet on a regular basis and share their experiences

  • The Data Architecture COI is designed to:
    • Share best practices
    • Prioritize and communicate issues
    • Identify trends
    • Propose solutions
    • Collectively communicate feedback to the DAC
  • The Data Architecture COI will meet on a monthly basis at EPA HQ with call in capability for non-local Data Stewards
