Subject: (PR) 15-day Public Review for TGF Pattern Language - Core Patterns v1.0 and TGF Primer v1.0

The OASIS Transformational Government Framework TC [1] members have
produced an updated Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and Committee
Note Draft (CND) and submitted these drafts for 15-day public review:

Transformational Government Framework (TGF) Pattern Language Core
Patterns Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
16 November 2011

Transformational Government Framework Primer Version 1.0
Committee Note Draft 02 / Public Review Draft 02
16 November 2011

Specification Overview:

The Transformational Government Framework (TGF) is a practical "how
to" standard for the design and implementation of an effective program
of technology-enabled change at national, state or local government
level. It describes a managed process of ICT-enabled change in the
public sector, which puts the needs of citizens and businesses at the
heart of that process and which achieves significant and
transformational impacts on the efficiency and effectiveness of

The TGF Pattern Language is a formalization of the Framework that is
both human-readable and machine-tractable. This document constitutes
the initial set of patterns that form the core of the TGF Pattern
Language. This set may be revised and/or extended from time to time as

The TGF Primer is intended to serve as an introduction to and detailed
overview of the Framework. It also covers the Framework's rationale,
purpose, scope, and intended use.

TC Description:
The Transformational Government TC is advancing an overall framework
for using information technology to improve the delivery of public
services. Unlike traditional e-Government strategies of the past,
Transformational Government begins with citizen engagement to assure
greater use and return on investment.

The work of the TC includes defining the framework, identifying use
cases, and providing adoption guidance for governments around the
world, regardless of their history in implementing eGov.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts 28 November 2011 and ends 13 December 2011.
These documents were previously submitted for 30-day public reviews
[2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the
previous review. Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDFs file
included in the ZIP files containing the CSPRD and CNPRD drafts.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from
potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not,
for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its
technical work.


The complete package of the prose specification document and related
files are available in the ZIP distribution files at:
