Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

Discusssion on NSTIC NPO activities over the past year, principally Governance NOI, NIST Recommendations Report and Recommended Charter, and pilot activities.

Following pilot down-select, there is current period to submit complete proposals due by May 10. Pilot evaluation is on schedule to expect awards in July. Comment that NIST should publicize selected pilot awards as soon as possible following award – that is the intent.

Discussion of distinction between NIST recommendations for Governance Structure/Charter and discussion draft of Steering Group By-laws issued yesterday. NIST Recommendations were based on public comments to NOI and reflect NIST analyses and synthesis of the 57 NOI responses. The Recommendations stand as issued – NIST recommendations for Steering Group Governance Structure. The draft By-laws were formulated by NSTIC NPO. The draft By-laws should be considered “Straw man” to accelerate and advance further discussions for the development of the SG By-laws.

Discussion on Governance Recommendations focused on explanation of terms, 2-tier body of the Steering Group – Plenary and Management Council, and the recommendation for representational composition of Management Council based on self-declared stakeholder categories.
