The Federal Transition Framework (FTF) provides clear and consistent information to describe government-wide IT policy objectives and cross-agency initiatives.

The FTF does not create IT policy. It provides a simple structure to organize and publish existing information to:

  • Enhance the quality and consistency of information on cross-agency initiatives
  • Increase the level and speed of adoption of cross-agency initiatives
  • Improve the overall effectiveness and efficiency of IT investments and programs related to cross-agency initiatives.


Three documents are provided to describe the content and structure of the FederalTransition Framework and how it should be used:

  • FTF Usage Guide: Provides guidance to agency decision-makers and crossagency stakeholders on how to apply and extend the FTF. This is the first document to read when starting to learn about the FTF and how it should be used.
  • FTF Catalog: Provides a written description and information references for cross-agency initiatives included in the FTF.
  • FTF Metamodel Reference: Provides information on the internal structure of the FTF. This document is provided as a technical reference for architects.
