Statement of Architecture Work is one of the TOGAF deliverables you can create with the TOGAF software.
The document defines the scope and approach that will be used to complete an architecture project. It is the document against which successful execution of the architecture project will be measured and may form the basis for a contractual agreement between the supplier and consumer of architecture services.
