DISCUSSION

Baseline Expectations

Next Steps for Baseline Expectations Implementation

Consultation for Baseline Expectations Implementation and Maintenance Plan - closed Aug. 18
, 2017. The  only comment/input from the consultation was on the baseline expectations themselves and not on implementation and maintenance process.

Brett will participate in the InCommon Steering in September and the plan is to obtain Incommon Steering endorsement to move ahead with Baseline Expecations Implementation and Maintenance. The AAC hopes to  have a preliminary communication plan to share with Steering.  Erin Murtha and Tom  Barton will be working with Dean Woodbeck on the communication plan. 

One issue that has been identified is around the Baseline Expectation for SPs that states: "Unless governed by an applicable contract, attributes required to obtain service are appropriate and made known publicly" and the challenges around how to measure this.  Likely it will be necessary to gain experience in this area.

[AI] (Brett) will draft an email to participants list announcing that the Baseline Expectations Implementation and maintenance consultation is closed, that implementation is coming and highlighting areas important to start thinking about.

Future steps may include a newsletter article to help get the word out and a suggestion for a public wiki page that states probable timeline for rollout.

Ann reported that the MDQ project (per entity metadata pull service) is also moving ahead. This is another area where the federation is scaling for the future and setting up internal processes for greater trust

AAC Charter Updates and Recruiting New AAC Members

There was discussion of updates to the  AAC charter and the need for recruiting the right AAC members so we are supporting  baseline effectively. It was agreed that the AAC should include broader representation.  Not all AAC members should be from  R1 campuses and AAC members from different operational roles may also be considered.  The AAC should be a microcosm of the InCommon Federation itself. Security expertise and  policy environment diversity may be helpful

It will be helpful to identify the key categories from which we should be pulling AAC members to ensure representation, and specify the institutions in the those buckets. This could help us identify individuals

AI] (Ann) will prepare quick  list  of InC participants in various buckets based on the InCommon fee structure.

Next AAC call: Wed., Sept. 13, 2017 at 4pm ET
