    5. Domain Experts -
      1. We have one vote underway for an updated Mission and Charter from RCRIM. It does use the new M&C template.
        • M&C updates do not need to be reviewed by TSC, but significant changes should be. Determination of whether changes are substantive is at SD level. ACTION ITEM: Lynn to check process documents.
      2. Clinical Trial Registration and Results (CTR&R) project from RCRIM [1] was unanimously approved.
      3. Nothing new to report on the ACS DAM project that was tabled a few weeks ago by the TSC. Could push back to SD; but TSS SD having similar discussion. Need answer to DAM artifact as product with no plans for implementable standards: Informative document, a standard or product in itself. Ed Hammond felt this was valuable to pursue, but will it disappoint later if no further action is taken? Push to CIC, need to find someone to implement. Add to Saturday session agenda, request Ed to participate. HDF framework and SAEAF framework provide DAM architecture.
    6. Foundation & Technology – no quorum last mtg, no report.
