“Alpha Project” Engagement Approach:

The following engagement approach is the initially proposed baseline approach from the project phase initiation documents. It is subject to further dialog and included here for reference:

  1. Schedule fact gathering conference call (2 – 3 hours) to initiate dialog with candidate alpha projects
  2. Proposed agenda and call to action including:
    • Introduction & purpose of call (namely Information exchange and grounding) – 15 minutes
    • SAEAF Overview (ideally through an ArB member) – 30 minutes
    • Alpha Project Synopsis: Each project to give a 15 min. presentation outlining: who the sponsor agency is; the nature of the project; how they hope to leverage the SAEAF; and what their ultimate goals are in participating (e.g. balloting of a particular spec).
    • Next Steps – EA-IP Team to outline anticipated next steps re. Alpha project criteria development and to identify next contact point
  3. Subsequent to the call, Project Team and Advisory Group to determine criteria and terms of engagement in collaboration with the ArB.
