Feedback on the Objectives (1)
• Will consortia be held to a prescriptive
definition of deliverables or can we address
objectives in spirit of AB86?
Feedback on the Objectives (2)
• Must objectives 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7 be completed

overlap. Please clarify.
Feedback on the Objectives (3)

structure their plans as long as we directly
respond to the objectives?
