"Mapping OASIS TGF to ISO 38500: An Introduction" V1.0 published by the #TGF TC

OASIS is pleased to announce the approval and publication of an OASIS Committee Note (CN) by the members of the OASIS Transformational Government Framework TC [1]:

Mapping OASIS TGF to ISO 38500: An Introduction Version 1.0
Committee Note 01
18 December 2014


"Mapping OASIS TGF to ISO 38500" is intended to serve as a contribution to a discussion within ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 40 (“IT Service Management and IT Governance”), the objective of which is to determine possible future work based on a mapping between the OASIS “Transformational Government Framework” Standard and the ISO 38500-series of deliverables covering “Governance of Information Technology”.

The result of such mapping could lead to the OASIS TGF TC recommending the existing (or a future) version of the TGF Standard to JTC 1 as a “PAS” submission or identifying requirements for a new work item, within the OASIS TGF TC (with an objective of future submission to JTC 1) or directly within JTC 1/SC 40 itself (with the TGF TC providing input via OASIS liaisons and nominated experts to the SC 40 working group designated to work on this).
