Supporting Documents

Minutes/Conclusions Reached:

  1. Schedule:
    • (May) Review TSC Three-Year Plan
      • Dashboard the items from the Strategic Initiative
      • Communication Strategy – are we going forward with this as a project. Jay reported that when Ravi reached out to the affiliates they got no response on what they’d like to see. Woody noted that at FTSD last night the discussion on how to have a good Working Group Meeting brought up the idea that they’d like to see a list of the Hot Topics the TSC is dealing with, not the projects that passed but the ones that get deferred. Some work groups start their meetings with 5 minutes of recap of the firecrackers that had been launched. Should we highlight in a weekly report the top three things that are issues for others to look at more closely like current hot topics. Ken notes Lynn’s email has the high-level of detail. Lynn notes she took from the meeting that she needs a less-than half page summary like Update from the TSC that includes motions that were tabled indicating they had discussion.
        • Austin fears that the PIC Resource directory won’t be ready soon enough. Woody says it’s already up on the wiki. Austin wants to see a scope statement. Ken wants us to have a scope statement before we go ahead and build something; to follow the process and not circumvent the process. Ed suggests we ask for the scope statement more on how it will be monitored and managed, not the initial setup.
        • Austin asks if we need an elaborate Communications Strategy. Woody cautions that that not all cochairs are informed, even coordinating with one another. Ed notes that in RCRIM he does a slide deck on what the TSC is doing; the TSC could send out a slide deck to the cochairs on what the TSC is doing for them to present. Woody adds the new Security cochair informed him that he didn’t know he was supposed to participate with the Steering Division calls; this needs to be in the new cochair orientation. ACTION ITEM: Lynn will forward this request to Karen. Austin adds we can add a hot issues markup for communication to the cochairs somewhere on the agenda. Jay notes that Lynn’s email goes to cochairs and international affiliate chairs. Not all cochairs will forward it. Woody asks if it should be posted somewhere. Jay suggests an advertising campaign on here’s where you go for hot topics from the TSC, please bookmark the links. This is where you find the information. Ron would like an appendix with reference points for the committees in the onsite guide with URLs. Each work group and the link to their current agenda would be handy.
    • (May) Review TSC Communications Plan
  2. ArB – Tony met with Implementation and Conformance, and Frank Oemig and Rob, in taking on the ECCF with the specification stack being orthogonal. Tony communicated to them that it is hierarchical and there is more than one stack. Having already an ECCF for Version 2, Charlie says the V2 ECCF has conflicting terms. Tony says they have to harmonize their terms and he will continue to work with them towards an agreement. Tony is working with Wendy to facilitate. Charlie would like to see the TSC tell IC they must harmonize their V2 conformance chapter 2b; it doesn’t apply to V3 conformance. Woody says there is no V3 conformance specification today.
    • Motion: Charlie moves TSC should inform IC their Chapter 2b document scope is 2.x and any inclination to extend to version 3 a conformance specification should start with a new project. Woody seconds. Vote: Unanimously approved.
