These standards are designed to enable Service Oriented architecture (SOA) governance teams to help agencies plan, design, and maintain Tier One SOA-based services for enterprise use.
This document does not suggest which services agencies should provide to one another. These governance issues should be addressed by individual projects or system implementation initiatives.
SOA standards and guidelines are expected to evolve as more SOA-based services are deployed and the multi-agency governance teams collaborate.
