I'm writing up an analysis of a number of frameworks for review by an IT department. On the Java side I'm reviewing Struts, Cacoon, Tapestry, etc. I'm also reviewing some Cold Fusion and PHP based frameworks.
Does anyone know if someone has .Net equivalent of Struts? The IT director here knows that I am biased towards J2EE/Struts based web apps, and I'm trying to be thorough and documents the strengths and weaknesses of a number of frameworks, both open source and commercial.

Not really. It is tough to write Model 2 applications in ASP.NET, although you can get pretty close. We haven't found it to be particularly amenable development away from its path of least resistence, which are code-behind pages that are excruciatingly coupled to the UI.
The more ASP.NET way is to create custom components (ala custom JSP tags) that handle specific chores. This still doesn't address lots of things that Struts addresses (like decoupled workflow, clean separation of responsibilities, etc).

There is Microsoft Application Blocks for .NET. I have zero experience with it and I haven't heard very good things... but I'll leave it to you to decide.
