Thanks Larry - you covered it very well. I'd like to add just one clarification around what stage this project is at in this point in the journey and what the initial next steps look like as things get started.
At this point we have a number of interested parties thinking about projects and we'll be working with the initial Technical Advisory Council to identify a lifecycle for projects and an intake process for new projects. This includes identifying projects that are interesting, having a template for a project proposal to be made, stages for projects that are part of ASWF and potentially even archiving of projects that are no longer maintained down the road. There are decisions to be made about accepting projects and we have a governance model designed to facilitate that process.
The process is the key next step. If I could plan a teaser out there, the very first TAC meeting will be next Wednesday (the details are below). The TAC is initially composed of one representative from the Premier members, but it's open for anyone to listen in. We will be crawl/walking for a while until everyone's ready to run, but please feel free to listen in while we're getting everything up and running.
Thanks for your interest,
VP of Strategic Programs
