Using an EA

Acquisition

An EA is used in acquisition to provide the basis for justifying that an investment meets strategic goals and objectives. An EA also provides guidance and direction to those who will be translating the operational needs into design, implementation, and deployed capabilities.

In some cases, the acquisition of a major system by an organization requires the bidder or winning contractor to develop architecture documentation that both aligns with the organization's overall EA and also provide the next tier of detailed architecture necessary to design and implement the system.

This topic area provides guidance, case studies, and other references to help the EA practitioner to use EA to influence their acquisition processes and outcomes.
