The Transformational Government Framework TC  members have recently approved a Committee Note Draft (CSD) and submitted it for 30-day public review:
Transformational Government Framework (TGF) Tools and Models for the Business Management Framework: Volume 1 Using the Policy Product Matrix Version 2.0
Committee Note Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
22 April 2014
With the release we are testing a convenience option for submitting comments to the Technical Committee. Please see the details under ‘Public Review Period’ below.
This Committee Note and the associated Wiki resource contain detailed information and guidance on using the Policy Products matrix in the Business Management Framework, as identified in the Transformational Government Framework (TGF) Version 2.0. It is the first in an intended series of Committee Notes providing further guidance on the Business Management Framework. Policy Products are the written policies, frameworks and standards which inform government activity.
The TGF contains the following statement:
“A full analysis of the Policy Products which we recommend are typically needed to deliver an effective and holistic transformation program are described in a separate TGF Committee Note “Tools and Models for the Business Management Framework”. Although the detailed Policy Products in that note are advisory and not all of them may be needed, any conformant transformation program MUST use the overall framework and matrix of the Policy Product Map in order to conduct at minimum a gap analysis aimed at identifying the key Policy Products needed for that government, taking the Committee Note into account as guidance.”
This Committee Note sets out the range of Policy Products which should be considered in any Transformational Government program. Not all may be necessary for every program, and in some cases a program may wish to meet the objectives of what are shown here as separate Policy Products through a single, broader Policy Product.
The Transformational Government TC advances 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.
