What is a consultation?

Working groups and advisory groups produce reports, recommendations, standards, best practices, and related documents. These are then provided to the community for review in the form of a consultation. In addition, policy and other documents developed by Internet2 Trust and Identity division staff may undergo the community consultation process to gather broader input and awareness before becoming finalized.
