DATA AND INFORMATION REFERENCE MODEL (DRM)
The Data and Information Reference Model (DRM) will describe, at an aggregate
level, the data and information that support program and business line
operations. The model will aid in describing the types of interaction and
exchanges that occur between the Federal Government and its various customers,
constituencies, and business partners.
The DRM will categorize the government's information along general content
areas and decomposes those content areas into greater levels of detail. The DRM
establishes a commonly understood classification for Federal data and leads to
the identification of duplicative data resources. A common data model will
streamline the processes associated with information exchange both within the
Federal government between the government and its external stakeholders.
Currently, there is no scheduled release date for the Data and Information Reference Model (DRM).
