4.0 Chapter 4: Measurement/Verification

4.1 Agency EA Results

a. NASA EA effectiveness will be measured based on the results of IT implementations to achieve Agency IRM goals and objectives. Key metrics will be established that link EA successes with alignment of IT capabilities to mission requirements, improved security, actual cost savings, performance improvements, reduction of duplication, and improved agility/flexibility through simplification and standardization. Based on these successes, EA will support mission outcomes, business and science results, as well as assure integrated infrastructure that provide NASA workers the IT resources needed within a comprehensive security framework.

b. The NCEA shall track these results and review the outcomes with the CIO at least annually to communicate results and feedback, in order to improve the investment process, investment performance, and the EA program process.

c. The NCEA will work with internal and external stakeholders to develop and mature EA metrics that clearly illustrate progress or deficiencies in key areas. The specifics of these metrics shall be agreed to by both stakeholder groups and provide information useful to determining benefit of the associated Agency goals. This information will then be delivered under a separate EA guidance document.

4.2 OMB Submissions

a. In order to comply with OMB mandates, the NASA EA submits products on a regular basis to the Federal Enterprise Architect. As these inputs evolve under new guidelines, NASA will be evaluated and given direct feedback on the completeness, quality, and timeliness of these submissions.

b. The NCEA shall track these results and review the outcomes with the NASA CIO at least annually to ensure results and feedback will be used to improve both the EA program and investment performance.
