Enterprise Repositories Issue Brief
NASCIO has identified the need for a repository for sharing a variety of enterprise artifacts, presentations, and white papers across the NASCIO community. CORE.gov is the preferred repository for meeting the needs of state and territorial government. This research brief describes the issues, constraints, options and recommendations.

About The Enterprise Architecture Program

The NASCIO Enterprise Architecture program was developed to enable the mission of state and local government. Government must continually reinvent itself to remain relevant by effectively and efficiently providing services to the citizens of this country. The path to this continual transformation must embrace leadership, management, coordination, communication and technology throughout government. Enterprise architecture is the discipline to appropriately define and leverage these capabilities within the complexities of government.

Funding to support the NASCIO EA Program and information sharing initiative is provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs.
