Thursday Q3 CS/OO
TSC has asked each WG to review their Decision Making Processes policy and documentation, so a review was conducted.
Currently this is co-chair + 4. However we rarely attain this level on conference calls, and this tends to impede getting decisions made. At the present time, due the workgroup activity, most decisions are of an administrative rather than technical or clinical nature. It was suggested that a quorum of co-chair + 2 would be sufficient. A concern was noted by Stephen Chu, that 1+2 would make some decisions open to later challenge. The groups discussed this, considering that most decisions were of an administrative nature currently and where there were substantive issues to discuss we would always aim for greater quorum. Also the quorum can be readdressed when the typical business of the group changes.
Motion: Rik, seconded Stephen To approve the updated DMP document, with the quorum change to co-chair plus 2. Against, abstain, in favor - 0, 0, 6, carried
Action for Rik to send the updated DMP to Lynn (done Sept 18th)
