      • EA IP Update: from Marc Koehn - At this point we are in a holding pattern waiting for the Alpha Charters to roll in. I am hopeful that PASS will come in this week given the Chicago SOA discussions – but I have not yet received a formal update. CTS2 will be tackling their charter work shortly as well. I have not yet heard form Charlie Mead on the NCS projects but have a feeling that they are waiting for some funding. As for CDA R3, I sense a bit of resistance given some recent threads but we will aim to work through that with them on the their call on the 18th.

      • proposed RASCI (Responsible, Accountable, Supportive, Consulted, Informed) chart discussion to manage the apparent overlap between various work groups and projects in our Steering Division: Draft RASCI chart. We would like to propose the approach and a first draft chart. In view of great upcoming changes, it may be useful to use RASCI charts for the entire organization collaboratively with the work groups to identify the responsibilities and interests of various stakeholder. A RASCI chart approach may be used for other new, cross-cutting activities initiated by the TSC.
