Abstract: The paper proposes an extension for architecture framework Togaf. In particular, it addresses on architecture exceptions and their governance. The article covers a reference model for architecture exception governance (AEG RM) and the way how to integrate it with Togaf Framework. As part of AEG RM there is defined an entity called architecture exception with its main attributes. AEG RM defines all the processes necessary for architecture exception governance, roles and responsibilities, principles a procedures and supporting tools. There is one chapter dedicated only for integration of Togaf and AEG RM. As summary, the paper has two main focuses. The first one is to present architecture exception governance reference model. The second is to integrate the reference model with Togaf architecture Framework. The article requires at least basic knowledge in architecture governance and architecture framework Togaf.
