The Dutch government has a 'family' of reference architectures. The Dutch Government Reference Architecture 'NORA' is the mother of several domain-specific e-government reference architectures, e.g. GEMMA for municipalities, PETRA for provinces, WILMA for water control authorities, ROSA for the education sector, etc. Each reference architecture falls under a different authority, but there is obviously a connection between them.

For the past few years, we have been working (together with several ministries and other government organizations) on annotating and disseminating the reference architectures in semantic wiki's. Together with the ministry of education and the ministry of internal affairs we are currently establishing cross-wiki links so that the knowledge in the NORA-wiki can be linked to, and reused in, the ROSA-wiki. When the NORA evolves, architects of the ROSA can view the changes in a Dashboard that is placed in the wiki. The idea is that all other NORA 'daughters' will use the same techniques so that they get timely updates in their own wiki on the evolution of the NORA, while at the same time the way in which NORA is applied in the different domains can be monitored from within the NORA wiki via interwiki-queries.
