           Why a Governance Framework?
 Modernization Program is enterprise wide.

 Governance framework establishes:
   – Levels of governance authority.
   – Authority relationships.
   – Application of governance authority and organizational structure.
   – Authorized governance roles and responsibilities.
 There are three levels of governance authority:
   – Executive Level: strategic goals and activities, agency priorities,
     and program direction.
   – Program Level: daily management of business and technical
   – Project Level: executing tasks and implementing the program.
