Dear Open Group Members,
I hereby announce the Company Review of the following Open Standard with The Open Group Architecture Forum as the sponsor of the review:
TOGAF® Version 9.1 - Simplified Chinese

Any changes that you would like to propose for changes to further versions of the standard are outside the scope of this review and should be brought to the attention of the Forum members via, email@example.com where they will be considered at a later date for future versions of the standard.

The recommendation formulating change request review group will be the Architecture Forum and invited Subject Matter Experts.
The balloting group consists of the members of the Architecture Forum.
