 Upcoming Baseline Expectations Webinars

• Wed Feb 21: Health Checks

• Wed March 7:  Participation Agreement changes

Participation Agreement (PA) and Federation Operating Policies and Practices (FOPP), vote or consensus
• Must turn revised FOPP and PA over to InCommon Steering next week for review prior to the Steering vote at their March 5, 2018 meeting

• Regarding dispute resolution (see FOPP section 8) (see PA section 10)

  • For Issues with the federation operator -- go to InCommon Steering

  • For  Issues with another InCommon participant –  go to CTAB

• Please send comments by end of week to CTAB email list.

• Possible “wrinkle” in process of updating FOPP and PA for Baseline Expectation:

◦ InCommon is also implementing the Steward Program in which InCommon partners with Regional Networks  for supporting K12
◦ There are changes to FOPP and PA needed for the Steward Program also (in addition to the changes BE). Internet2 Legal may want to include the changes to the FOPP and PA needed for the Steward Program as we bring to the community  the changes needed to the FOPP and PA for BE.

• CTAB voted to approve the proposed changes to PA and FOPP and move this along to Steering for their March 5 meeting.

• After Steering approval, an email will go to the community and then the 90 day review period will start.
