NIEM to Transition from DoD to OASIS
Thursday, September 22, 2022 | Comments

This October, the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) will transition from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to OASIS, an American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited and International Standards Organization (ISO)-recognized standards development organization.

This creates a bath for NIEM to become an official standard in national and international policy and procurement. The inaugural NIEM Open Project Governing Board (PGB) meeting will occur October 20 in Arlington, Virginia.

“Transitioning to an Oasis Open Project allows NIEM to become more readily available to international communications and organizations that want to adopt NIEM,” said Stuart Whitehead of the U.S. Department of Defense. “We look forward to working with new alliances in the private sector to assist in the integration of NIEM into even broader user communities, allowing NIEM to become the gold standard for public-private partnerships. This is an exciting time to continue to advance the NIEM model technically as it transforms into an open, international standard.”

NIEM’s open sponsors will provide strategic vision, governance and technical guidance for future efforts and have the option to serve on the PGB, where they approve work produced by the community, as well as proposals for new open-source projects.
