Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF)
The Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF), Version 2.0 serves as the overarching, comprehensive framework and conceptual model enabling the development of architectures to facilitate the ability of Department of Defense (DoD) managers at all levels to make key decisions more effectively through organized information sharing across the Department, Joint Capability Areas (JCAs), Mission, Component, and Program boundaries. The DoDAF serves as one of the principal pillars supporting the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) in his responsibilities for development and maintenance of architectures required under the Clinger-Cohen Act. It also reflects guidance from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-130, and other Departmental directives and instructions. This version of the Framework provides extensive guidance on the development of architectures supporting the adoption and execution of Net-centric services within the Department.

Human Resource Management (HRM) Architecture
The HRM September 2014 Release is a result of the BEA 14-1 integration workshops, HRM Architecture Federation effort, Recruiting and Accession Data Exchange Standards (XDS) Integrated Product Team (IPT) effort and ongoing HRM architecture maintenance work.

Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA)
The Federal Enterprise Architecture is comprised of several reference models that describe various aspects of Federal Government business independently of the responsible agencies. DoD models are aligned with the Federal models.

Federal Enterprise Architecture Data Reference Model (DRM) Version 2.0
Integrated Definition (IDEF)
IDEF stands for "Integrated Definition" methodologies. IDEF0 and IDEF1X were adopted as Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) for modeling by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) in December 1993. The BEA uses IDEF methodologies for modeling except in the case of the DoDAF OV-6c artifact (Operational Event-Trace Description), where BPMN activity modeling techniques are used to provide more detailed information.
The referenced IDEF standards are available from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
