Trust framework providers, such as InCommon, have 6 months to comply with the new FICAM spec. There are  discussions underway to determine the impact of FICAM 2.0 to the InCommon Assurance program and the community. An important question is: what are the service providers FICAM will be working with first? The Veterans Admin is a big one. InCommon is aware that many campuses don't want their faculty and staff to leverage their campus credentials to interact w with consumer based services like the VA. They Campuses want to use their the campus credentials to be used for grant submissions and teaching resources or for interactions  interactions with the  the Dept of Ed. InCommon is hoping to find out from FICAM, what is the ETA for FICAM to bring on board the services that are more related relevant to higher ed? The answers to these questions will help the AAC determine how to support FICAM 2.0.
