FACE TO FACE MEETING IN LAUSANNE
Meeting on Monday, September 11th. Board members are encouraged to add agenda items on the wiki page.
It was determined that if we transition off CollabNet it needs to be completed by January 1, 2007 when the existing contract ends.
Jo Walsh and Tyler Mitchell were designated to continue working on the new demonstration portal, and to work on a proposal for infrastructure transition, with a more detailed review at the face to face meetings in September.
Frank Warmerdam previously briefed the EDRC BAA in the 15th board meeting. Mark Lucas reviewed the BAA, it is typical of many government BAA's and is primarily targeted at companies with cost plus accreditation addressing specific topics identified in the document. Of potential interest is an offer to co-host conferences on common topics with not for profit organizations. The not for profit organization submits a proposal and budget estimates to ERDC for review and approval. Something that we might consider in the future.
Next meeting planned in two weeks.
The meeting was closed.
