Thank you for this information about the new WG.  Can I point you to our Transformational Government Framework (TGF) standard that the ISA team is already familiar with.  One of the conformance clauses of our framework requires a Core Terminology and Reference Model to be produced by any government transformation programme.  We have not as yet specified the full content of such a model, mainly because getting universal agreement is not easy, although our specification does point to some basics that should be part of any model.

There are 3 documents that we have produced setting out the TGF and these are attached.

Core Pattern Language - this is the formal specification and sets out  what is necessary to be conformant with the standard.  Pattern number 4 is the relevant core pattern for the Core Terminology and Reference Model.
TGF Primer - this provides detailed explanation of the whole framework.
Policy Product Matrix - this provides additional guidance on how to  use the Matrix.  You will find an entry for the Reference Model at https://wiki.oasis-open.org/tgf/cell%20Business%20Management/Organisational and in due course we would look to include your output as a example of best practice in the same way as we have included ADMS in another of the matrix cells.

I can see a very positive join between the output from your WG and our framework to such an extent that we could well consider building it into our  specification which of course would enhance our model and also raise the profile of your work considerably.  In addition the members of my committee have a wealth of global experience in this field and will be a very good sounding board for any of your proposals. 

So can I register our interest in your work and request membership of your new WG please.  If you wish to know anymore about our TGF please let me know.

Subject: Describing a Public Sector Service

I must begin by apologising for sending an e-mail to a Bcc list, especially one that includes people I know personally, but I don't know everyone and I certainly don't have permission to share e-mail addresses.

I want to draw your attention to new work about to get under way within the European Commission's ISA Programme to develop a core vocabulary for describing public sector services. The idea has been around for a while and there is some existing work to draw on, but the plan is to develop a conceptual model of what a service is, how it relates to people and organisations, events, legislation, guidelines etc.

A description of the work is published at [1] and you can get an idea of one strand of relevant thought from work under way within the UK government [2].

Does this touch on your current or near future work? Do you see a benefit in defining a core model for describing a service that can then be extended and specialised as necessary but within a framework that allows greater data interoperability?

In the very near future, we will gather the new working group and begin weekly conference calls. The ISA programme team, which includes staff from PricewaterhouseCoopers and myself from W3C, will provide the infrastructure, secretariat and editorship to support the working group. 
As a participant, we would ask you to join the weekly calls, share your use cases, requirements and expertise to help develop the vocabulary and, ideally, then pilot its implementation in your own work. The WG is due to complete its work in the first quarter of next year.

I would be very interested to know your level of interest in this work and of any relevant work you have already done that the working group should take note of.

We have scope for two further working groups and are currently finalising the choice of topic. Current options include modelling business branches, events/incidents, buildings and rooms, and payments. 
We're also considering developing application profiles for the data catalogue vocabulary (DCAT) and the business reporting language XBRL so if public sector services are not relevant, again, I'd be very interested to know if any of these ideas are relevant to you.

Thank you for your time
