ITAC and other Association executives attended a session to hear SSC’s plans for the quarterly consultation meetings with the ICT industry. The SSC provided information on the framework and process for the ITIR including the fact that it will set up four Advisory Committees to advise the SSC on priority areas: Architecture Framework, Innovative Canadian Enterprises, Procurement Benchmarks, and “Smart” Sourcing.
The Advisory Committee on Architecture framework will be the first to launch. Shared Services Canada will seek input on a Government of Canada IT architecture framework which would support standardization, interoperability and innovation. It would also be asked to identify best practices in adopting reference architectures, standards and security in the ICT industry in Canada.
