The Generic Activity Model for Statistical Organizations (GAMSO) Version 1.1 describes and defines the activities that take place within a typical statistical organization. It extends and complements the Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) by adding additional activities needed to support statistical production. When the GSBPM was developed, such activities were referred to as over-arching processes, and were listed, but not elaborated in any great detail. Over the years there have been several calls to expand the GSBPM to better cover these activities. The GAMSO was therefore developed to meet these needs.
The following diagram, which is adapted from one in the vision paper of the High-Level Group for the Modernisation of Official Statistics, shows the position of the GAMSO in relation to the other models and frameworks needed for statistical modernisation.
