Abstract : The purpose of this volume of the Technical Architecture Framework for information Management (TAFIM) is to provide program managers and their supporting Government and contractor staffs with guidance for developing technical architectures in planning and managing command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence (C4I), and information systems programs, either migration or new acquisition programs. This volume is a guide for applying and integrating the principles and guidelines of the TAFIM and other Department of Defense (DoD) guidance documents promoting an open systems environment (OSE) for information systems. The information provided in this volume is intended to assist C4I and information systems program managers in making sound management decisions that result in OSE-compliant systems. This volume contains guidance for those C4I and information systems program management areas where OSE principles and standards should be incorporated in planning and management. This guidance applies to all DoD Components in the management of new C4I and information systems, the modernization of existing C4I and information systems, and the upgrade of existing C4I and information systems components under the direction of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence (ASD/C3I). This includes all C4I and information systems programs, projects, activities, and information systems (including migration systems) that are to be acquired and managed in accordance with the DoD 8000 series directives and are subject to the TAFIM.
