    3. 3. Accomplishments - <ul><li>As the Chief Technology Officer of Lockheed Martin Information Services & Global Solutions (IS&GS) Enterprise Solutions (ES) Operating Unit, Dr. Maitra provides oversight and guidance to the development and coordination of enterprise architecture support across all ES Lines of Business to most of the Federal programs and projects that the ES group supports to ensure that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There is synchronization of the EA with particular agency missions, strategies, and goals, including OCIO IT Investment Portfolios </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Actionability and alignment of EA with OMB’s FEA along the lines of the Business, Technical, and Data architectures. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Dr. Maitra plays a major role in integrating EA business processes and governance with strategic planning, investment decision management, portfolio management, requirements, and transition and sequence planning to provide a seamless business and technical management environment. In several unprecedented new-start programs, the government program management has appointed Dr. Maitra as the only non-civil service member of the government’s Governance bodies within DHS and NASA Space Station Program. </li></ul><ul><li>During 2004-2006, Dr. Maitra participated in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Data Reference Model (DRM)Interagency Team as a representative of the Offices of the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the Air Force. He forged the necessary conceptual agreements crucial to advancing mission-related information-sharing challenges faced by the Federal, State, Local and Tribal Agencies and also authored the DRM v2.0 Management Strategy Document , which helped the team members turn myriad agency and experience differences into a source for our collective strength. He received commendation from the Co-Chairs of the OMB Architecture and Infrastructure Committee for demonstrating the efficacy of his collaborative organizing practice around Net-Centric Communities of Interest (COI) that he proposed and is now recognized as integral to the implementation and evolution of DRM v2.0. </li></ul><ul><li>During 1986-1991, Dr. Maitra directed the implementation of the Information Engineering Methodology (IEM) for the NASA Space Station FREEDOM Program (SSFP). His performance in refining the multi-mission, multidiscipline Space Station information systems architecture, including standards for data integration and interoperability earned him the highest merit citation ‘Superior’ from the NASA Space Station FREEDOM Program Office. </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Maitra is a published author of several books on the uses of information and satellite-based telecommunications technologies. He gives frequent speeches, including keynote addresses in Government and industry forums. He is a founding member of the Clarke Institute for Telecommunication and Information (Washington, DC). He is also active in the Society for Space Professionals. </li></ul>
