Data and Information Reference Model (DRM)

The Data and Information Reference Model (DRM) describes, at an aggregate level, the data and information that support program and business line operations. The model aids in describing the types of interactions and information exchanges that occur between the Federal Government and its various customers, constituencies, and business partners. It categorizes the government's information along general content areas and decomposes those content areas into greater levels of detail. The DRM establishes a commonly understood classification for Federal data and leads to the identification of duplicative data resources. A common data model streamlines the processes associated with information exchange both within the Federal government and between the government and its external stakeholders.[1]
