Australian Government Architecture Reference Models

In developing the AGA we have adapted an established and proven framework based on the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF) developed by the United States Government. This framework is being used in a number of other countries and some state governments in Australia. The framework and these reference models have been endorsed by the Australian Government’s Chief Information Officers’ Committee.
