This white paper reports on the progress and achievements that has been made in the area of federated accounting management since the beginning of FORM project. Thus far, an architecture of federated accounting management system and information model has been design and specified using UML and XML. These both aim to be both open and adaptable, and are based on concepts and recommendations laid down by TMForum (TeleManagement Forum), IPDR (IP Detail Record), OMG (Object Management Group) and IETF organisation. The functionality supported includes federated mediation, charges aggregation and settlement for the services provided, online bill querying. The architecture is composed of reusable components, which are being implemented using state-of-the-art technologies and being specified. As a part of FORM project, a prototype providing essential features of federated accounting management has been implemented, evaluated, and demonstrated.
