  2. Balloting GOM issues
    • Beebe asked how scope change gets determine, if they want to abandon a project,how do that they do that
    • Seppala – Patient Administration has lots of content in DSTU. To go to normative, they need two implementers. Unfortunately, though the committee has begged, no one has come forward. What should they do? Connectathons would be acceptable. How do we fine implementers.
    • Charlie Mead raise the issues of have DSTU mandatory. He also brought up the issues of scope change. You have two choices, you can start over of not change the scope. If you have a set of requirements to document the project and someone comes along with a brand new requirement, you’ll need to determine if the new requirement is an incremental change to scope or completely blows away the original requirements
  3. Nominations Committee – Ken McCaslin was appointed by the TSC to the nomination committee.
  4. Affiliate representative on Affiliates Council – Suggest that the TSC Chair be the liaison to the affiliate council.
  5. Project Insight process – Dave Hamill hasn’t received many updates. SD chairs will take some initiative to go through the list of products with their work groups. Need to have a more in depth discussion of what we are using Project Insight for. Is it just to inventory of projects or will it really be used to track projects. People are asking the TSC to make a strong statement about how the tool will be used.
  6. Monday evening sessions- Domain experts got some feedback:
    • Co-chairs want 15-30 minutes for people to get their food before presentations.
    • They suggested a TSC meeting later in the week in addition to the Monday evening meeting. #*McCaslin said his group wanted to start at 5:15 and eat through 5:45.
    • They want the open mic session.

Meeting adjourned at 1:30 pm PT
