Guidance on Enterprise Architecture in State Automated Human Services Systems

Published: December 15, 2008

This Information Memorandum (IM) from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) provides information to states concerning the identification, acquisition, and deployment of an Enterprise Architecture within and across automated human services information systems.

This Information Memorandum is intended to clarify current considerations for jurisdictions in their analyses of alternatives and feasibility studies, to include the definition and possible acquisition of broad-based, enterprise architectures as a technically viable, cost-reasonable automation solution. The information herein is not new, as the current regulatory requirements for feasibility studies, requirements analysis, and APDs still apply. Rather, this information is tailored to address some of the unique questions that may arise when states consider acquiring, with federal funding, an enterprise architecture solution encompassing multiple human services systems.
