The EIA Data Standards Domain focuses on the establishment and maintenance of adopted Commonwealth data standards. This includes standards for data management, data storage, data exchange, information architecture, messaging and implementation guides. The EIA Data Standards Domain fosters semantic interoperability across the Commonwealth based on enterprise agreements on common data/attribute definitions, specifications and vocabularies for data/information assets. Under this Domain, the Commonwealth Data Governance Team is responsible for publishing and maintaining enterprise data standards in the EA Standards Repository.
