InCommon Steering
• Program Subcommittee

program priorities with measurable objectives

each year and forwarded to Internet 2 via the Steering

impacting InCommon (the TIER thing falls into here)
InCommon next steps

Core issues
• What services should be offered, at what cost
and support level?
• What software components should be
developed? What should be the investment
• Who gets to say?
• Scope what is in/out?
• Who gets to prioritize?
TIER next steps
• Set a TIER charter (governance structure,
operating processes)
– InC: Jelinkova (Zoppi group), Cooper, Holmes,
Cromwell, Woo
– Kuali: Denna (Zoppi group), Trosvig
– Interested parties: Morooney, Futhey
– Internet 2: Waggener
• Figure out a funding model for the items
unfunded on operating lines (see InCommon
