Subject: RE: [tgf] TGF questions
The UK program hasn’t expired it’s just that the website referenced is being replaced. When they get the new one up I’ll change the reference. The framework is based on SFIA which is still the recommended approach but Chris can tell you more about that as he had a hand in developing it.
sorry I had a typo, it should have said 'it mentions a competency framework...'
and does so within a context that says development of one is a good way of defining the skills required for implementing a TGF program.
so this would seem pretty central to how customers engage with TGF, and so I was wondering if any template resources are available for this? it links to the UK program but that's now expired (www.civilservice.gov.uk/my-civil-service/networks/professional/it/framework.aspx)

Well, it might be that, but I also think it is somewhat more pragmatic.
Govt services are delivered in silos from siloed IT infrastructure.
The opportunity cloud offers is a way to optimise the ‘virtual franchise delivery’ (over time) by using cloud’s metered type pricing mechanisms, and APIs that don’t create an unaffordable capital expenditure ‘brick wall’, and an many-to-many (agencies/servers) integration nightmare.
Here is my first pass at linking TGF to Cloud :
I've now read through the main white paper, and had a couple of questions:
- It means a Transformation Competency Framework - This would seem an ideal way to make the TGF accessible to customers who want to base programs on it. Are there any resources available in this area?
- It would seem the headline idea is the use of 'agile, cross-government, virtual "franchise businesses" as the means of having processes span across multiple agencies - Any examples of how this has been achieved?
