Technology/Standard List

The Technology/Standard List identifies technologies and technical standards that have been assessed and have been determined to either be compliant or non-compliant with VA's technical approach to IT solutions. Those entries that are compliant are designated with a Decision status of 'Approved' or 'Approved w/Constraints'. Those entries that are non-compliant are designated with a Decision status of 'Unapproved', 'Unapproved - Divest', or 'Prohibited'. Project teams may select from the set of Approved technologies; however, approved status does not indicate the suitability or compatibility of a particular set of technologies. Each project team must consult the organizations responsible for the target development, desktop, testing and/or production environments to ensure that the intended use of the technologies is supported.

The technologies and technical standards are listed in alphabetical order. This information can be sorted by clicking on the column headers. The following help table describes the information listed:
Column Name Description
Name The URL (hyperlink) to the Technology/Standard Current Assessment, if it was assessed via the TRM process.
Vendor The name of the vendor that offers the technology or manages the technical standard.

  • ARB - Architectural Review Board
