Organizational Structure and Operating Guidelines

The following organizational structure was developed by the ATA e-Business Steering Group to establish a uniform framework for standards development and to provide a higher level of structure and order for achieving the industry vision/mission for an integrated data environment. One of the main objectives of this structure is to clearly convey the functional areas and specifications covered by each group to maximize subject matter expert and technical participation. Working groups may form Subteams as needed to work on specific aspects of their objectives. 

For a description of each Working Group, view the Committee List and Descriptions and the Operational Guidelines.  

  • The e-Business Steering Group (ESG) is responsible for setting the strategic goals and managing the working groups, project teams and change requests to achieve the vision and mission.
  • Working Groups are teams of subject matter and/or technical experts responsible for development and maintenance of ATA e-Business Program specifications
