II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

For many years, it has been important for the Defence Sector to establish comprehensive enterprise architecture in order to better manage the development of ICT enterprises that will support the operational needs of the Norwegian Armed Forces.

The enterprise architecture addresses the essential features of the enterprise as a whole, for example from a PTO (Process, Technology and Organisation) perspective, and must be documented as architecture models in the Defence Sector's central architecture database.

The target architecture will be based on nationally prepared general architecture descriptions, reference architectures from NATO and assessments from the various specialised professional milieu. In the Defence Sector, architects are also used in projects and programmes to document transition architectures.

With the assistance of consultants from external suppliers, the Defence Sector has implemented a structured repository and populated it with various architecture products.

These are mainly as-is architecture products, but also include transition architectures in projects and programmes, as well as target images and roadmaps that have been started. Furthermore, a framework/methodology and manuals have been prepared for use in the preparation of architecture products.

The three central architecture milieu in the Defence Sector (FST J6, CYFOR CVS and FMA ICT chap.) will facilitate the use of architecture in the sector (architecture practice) and support the sector with the preparation of architecture with content, and will therefore require assistance with the further development of frameworks/methods, manuals, repositories and with highlighting the benefits of architecture in decision-making processes.
