We are delighted to invite you for a very special evening with Kshemendra Paul, the chief Architect of OMB.

Kshemendra is responsible for leading efforts around the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA). In this role, Kshemendra defines policy, guidance, and processes for agency enterprise architecture (EA).

The Scope of Kshemendra Paul's role is to direct the entire Federal Government with an annual IT spend plan of approximately seventy billion dollars. The purpose of the FEA is to ensure that our Federal IT investments are as transformative as possible in terms of being the critical enabler of a result-oriented, citizen-centered, and market-based Federal government.

Previously, Kshemendra served as Chief Architect for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and was also the Program Executive for the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM). In this role he led efforts around data standards and inter-operability across Federal, State and Local stakeholders. In particular, Kshemendra took a leadership role with the counter-terrorism, law enforcement, and homeland security Information Sharing Environment (ISE) and the development of its architectural framework and profile. This resulted in the adoption of NIEM as the basis for ISE information sharing.

Kshemendra also served as the Co-Chair of the Services Subcommittee of the Architecture and Infrastructure Committee, where he was part of the team leading the development of the Practical Guide to Federal Service Oriented Architecture.
