Another integral part of the FEA Program is the Federal Enterprise Architecture Management System (FEAMS), a web-based management system designed to provide agencies with access to initiatives aligned to the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) and associated reference models. FEAMS includes multiple features to provide users with an intuitive approach to discover and potentially leverage components, business services, and capabilities across the Federal Government.
