Business Enterprise Architecture (BEA)

The Department of Defense (DoD) Business Enterprise Architecture (BEA) is the enterprise architecture for the DoD Business Mission Area (BMA). The purpose of the BEA is to provide a blueprint for DoD business transformation that helps ensure the right capabilities, resources, and materiel are rapidly delivered to the military – what they need, when they need it, where they need it, anywhere in the world.

The BEA guides and constrains the implementation of interoperable Defense Business System (DBS) solutions as required by the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) by guiding system alignment to end-to-end processes. It also guides information technology (IT) investment management to align with strategic business capabilities as required by the Clinger-Cohen Act and supporting the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO) policies.

The Office of the Chief Management Officer (CMO) annually produces the Business Enterprise Architecture (BEA) to help defense business system owners and program managers make informed decisions.
