Financial Model and Proposed Fee increase
Kevin provided a recap of the actions leading to this model (the paths forward discussions and the priorities that emerged: 1) hardening of federation operations and security, and the risk we face with funding for Shibboleth). Kevin originally provided two scenarios: a flat-rate increase and a flat percentage increase. At the TechEx meeting there was an additional request that a fee increase not apply to research organizations.
Kevin and Ann will draft a communications plan for the fee increase.
Steward Proof of Concept
Ann will send an update via email.
