During April 2017, InCommon and MCNC focused on the Internet2 Global Summit to discuss the status of the Steward Program with other regional networks, and their potential interest in participating. Ann West and Mark Johnson used a short slide deck for these discussions.
MCNC is also discussing next steps with potential service providers for K-14 that have signed Memoranda of Understanding to provide their services to MCNC’s Represented Constituents. In addition, MCNC continues to develop documentation for its processes, including what it means to ensure operational control of its Represented Constituents’ IdPs and SPs under the InCommon Steward Agreement.
With a six-month update on the proof of concept due June 30, MCNC and InCommon have developed an outline for a status report of successes and challenges, with recommendations on next steps for the program.
