Lars Toomre has been extremely consumed with his Object Management Group ("OMG") technology standards work this week. Lars is the chair of the OMG Government Domain Task Force ("GOVT DTF") that focuses on topics like RegTech, Compliance, Central Bank Digial Currencies ("CBDCs"), Government Statistics, and Secure and Trustworthy Elections. As always, Lars is dealing with a plethora of acronyms and various defined phrases, so OMG even has a working group focused on that topic too, Vocabularies for Community of Interest ("VCOI")! .
