New Action Items

[AI] ChrisP will reach out to Nicole about presenting the FIM4R response at REFEDs meeting on Monday Oct 15, 2018


FIM4R  Recommendations Progress   

  • David Walker has been working with Heather Flanagan and InCommon TAC around FIM4R response.
    • TAC will finalize the TAC input to the FIM4R response after the next TAC call.
  • ChrisP reached out to  CTAB re  input to FIM4R.  
  • Jill reviewed the Draft FIM4R Assessment doc being prepared    It was agreed that CACTI should aim to do prioritization of the feedback collected
    • If CACTI provides 30 recommendations to Kevin, then he and T&I leadership will need to figure out what to do.
    • Would look at time to completion, impact and resources intensity.
    • Would try to look at a blended portfolio, then vet that plan with the community
  • It will be very helpful if CACTI does some of this work before presenting their report to Kevin
  • CACTI could even conduct a vote on which are highest priorities. 
  • What are the most acute issues we should be working on as a community? 
  •  Impact on large versus small collaborations is significant: 
  • larger research collaborations can take care  of themselves and their IAM needs better than the smaller collaborations.  
  • Might be helpful to indicate how hard it would be to accomplish the recommendations.
  • In next two weeks, the FIM4R doc team will finish listing gaps and recommendations. 
  •  Oct. 2 CACTI will start evaluation and prioritizing.
