The USAP Enterprise Technical Architecture is an information technology architecture that establishes guidance and standards for systems being developed and deployed within the USAP networked environment. As a government funded program, the USAP architecture follows the guidance and models laid out in the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) program, which is sponsored by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) .
The USAP Technical Architecture is developed and distributed in a "business driven" way. The architecture group develops architecture documents as they are requested or needed to satisfy project initiatives in addition to developing the overall architectural models needed to describe the USAP technical environment.
