Thanks for starting this.

I added IETF (but don't have time to track down their description right

> - the Baldrige National Quality Program, which promotes performance

> conducts outreach programs and manages the annual Malcolm Baldrige
> National Quality Award which recognizes performance excellence and
> quality achievement;
> - the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership, a nationwide
> network of local centers offering technical and business assistance to
> smaller manufacturers; and
> - the Technology Innovation Program, which provides cost-shared awards

> OMA was formed in June 2002 by nearly 200 companies including the
> world's leading mobile operators, device and network suppliers,
> information technology companies and content and service providers.
> The fact that the whole value chain is represented in OMA marks a
> change in the way specifications for mobile services are done. Rather

> 'technology silos', with different standards and specifications bodies
> representing different mobile technologies, working independently, OMA

> [13] UN/CEFACT (eGov TBG19) - http://www.unece.org/cefact/
> The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) was set up
> in 1947 by ECOSOC. It is one of five regional commissions of the
> United Nations. The others are the Economic and Social Commission for
> Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the Economic Commission for Latin
> America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the Economic Commission for Africa
> (ECA) and the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA).
> Its major aim is to promote pan-European economic integration. To do
> so, UNECE brings together 56 countries located in the European Union,
> non-EU Western and Eastern Europe, South-East Europe and Commonwealth
> of Independent States (CIS) and North America. All these countries

> sectoral issues.
> [14] W3C (eGov, etc) - http://www.w3.org/
> W3C primarily pursues its mission through the creation of Web
> standards and guidelines. Since 1994, W3C has published more than 110
> such standards, called W3C Recommendations. W3C also engages in
> education and outreach, develops software, and serves as an open forum
> for discussion about the Web. In order for the Web to reach its full
> potential, the most fundamental Web technologies must be compatible
> with one another and allow any hardware and software used to access
> the Web to work together. W3C refers to this goal as “Web
> interoperability.” By publishing open (non-proprietary) standards for
> Web languages and protocols, W3C seeks to avoid market fragmentation
> and thus Web fragmentation.

> The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) is an open

> services interoperability, for selected groups of Web services
> standards, across platforms, operating systems and programming
> languages. WS-I comprises a diverse community of Web services leaders
> from a wide range of companies and standards development organizations
> (SDOs). WS-I committees and working groups create Profiles and
