Dear Open Group Members,

I hereby announce the Company Review of the following Open Group Preliminary Standard,

    The Open Business Architecture (O-BA) Standard

with The Open Group Governing Board Business Architecture Work Group as the sponsor of the review.

This is a recirculation review of this draft standard, as part of the changes between draft 1 and 2,
the document title has been adjusted, and also this is now targeted to be a Preliminary standard.

As it is a recirculation review, narrowing down rules are in effect, which means that text agreed in the first round is out of scope for change, unless impacted by new and changed text (for example if it is now inconsistent). A redline pdf will be distributed with the review materials to assist reviewers.

The review will commence on March 24, 2016 and end on April 14, 2016.
