Joni posted this notice last week on the LC and Community listserves, in
regards to the current NSTIC FFO. In light of this guidance, I'd suggest
that any further discussion on NSTIC be directed to the NSTIC DG to focus
In terms of the Privacy Assessment Criteria, as per the minutes of the ad
hoc meeting last week (
), we will be reviewing the structure and scope of the document on this
week's P3WG call... Agenda to follow...

Subject: [Kantara - Community] Kantara Invite to Participate:
NSTIC, Governance Recommendations, and FFO
Sent by: community-bounces at kantarainitiative.org
As you are likely aware, the NSTIC team has moved forward with NSTIC
Governance Recommendations . If you have not done so already,
community members should take time to familiarize themselves with the
contents of the response. Note that the contents of the response were
directly influenced by input from a broad spectrum of Identity Ecosystem
stakeholders - which includes the direct responses from Kantara Initiative
stakeholders. Kantara Members and Participants should take pride in the
contributions that have been made to date and moving forward to the NSTIC
Additionally, the NSTIC team has release a Federal Funding Opportunity
(FFO)  which captures guidelines and details for stakeholders to submit
proposals to request Federal funding of pilot programs and activities
which support the fostering of an Identity Ecosystem as identified in the
National Strategy. The FFO states that proposals, paper and electronic,
must be delivered by not later than 17:00 EST on Wednesday March 7th.
While Kantara Initiative will not submit direct proposals for pilots
facing NSTIC pilot funding, Kantara will play the role in connecting our
Members and partners who plan to submit proposals for this FFO. I am
aware that some Kantara WGs/DGs have already started discussing proposal
opportunities which they might submit. My suggestion is that Kantara
revive our NSTIC DG as a central point for interested stakeholders to
gather and manage their discussions for pilots.
1. DO - Share thoughts regarding pilot proposals as you find appropriate
via this community list with your peers
2. DO - Sign up for the NSTIC DG 
3. DO - Share your input via the NSTIC DG and network with your peers
4. DON'T - share information which you or your organization wish to be
confidential in nature. (in this case network directly with your peers -
Kantara staff will assist you to make contacts as appropriate.)
The NSTIC DG:
- serves as a coordination point for these activities - to assist
individuals and organizations to connect to better their respective
- may develop recommendations for organizational activities of Kantara
which address the developing NSTIC activities and progress.
FFO IMPORTANT Dates: Abbreviated proposals, paper and electronic, must be
received no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, March 7, 2012.
Abbreviated proposals received after this deadline will not be reviewed or
considered. Review of abbreviated proposals and selection of finalists is
expected to be completed by Thursday, March 22, 2012. Full proposals,
paper and electronic, must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern
Time on Monday, April 23, 2012. Full proposals received after this
deadline will not be reviewed or considered. Review of full proposals,
selection of successful proposers, and award processing is expected to be
completed in July 2012. The earliest anticipated start date for awards
under this FFO is expected to be September 1, 2012.
As always, my door is open for direct comments or questions stakeholders
may have. You may contact me directly and/or use the community/nstic-dg
lists to have broader discussions.
Thank you Kantara community for your efforts and input regarding NSTIC to
date and thank you for your continued support regarding the development of
NSTIC toward the fostering of a voluntary, privacy-respecting Identity
Ecosystem for ALL!
Note: I've cross posted this message to a few lists. If you are not a
member of each of those lists you will see bounce messages IF you reply to
all. FYI - the community list is 'open' to all respondents. If you are
unsure just respond to community at . thx!
