The Getty has this sort of thing in AAT, e.g., http://vocab.getty.edu/aat/300138088 represents the top concept for a function (the parent of function is activity).

The SPARQL query

SELECT * {
?c a gvp:Concept; skos:inScheme aat: ;
gvp:broaderTransitive aat:300054593 ;
gvp:prefLabelGVP/xl:literalForm ?label
} ORDER BY ?label LIMIT 100

will get you an alphabetical list of 100 functions

You can drop in luc:term for a keyword search:

SELECT * {
?c a gvp:Concept; skos:inScheme aat: ;
gvp:broaderTransitive aat:300054593 ;
gvp:prefLabelGVP/xl:literalForm ?label ;
luc:term "tax*"     
} ORDER BY ?label LIMIT 100

This gets three results: appraising, assessing, taxing

Does anyone know of a good functional taxonomy/thesaurus for identifying functions of government operations? I'd prefer one that goes into some detail about activities and transactions. What vocabularies are out there, or is everyone making up their own? This is for use in EAC, where functions have their own hierarchies and relationships with other functions, named entities, and record collections.
