Staff Updates

  • Director's Corner Link
  • Event Radar 2013 and 2014 Link
  • IDESG Trust Framework Trust Mark Committee has drafted an analysis tool to compare current TF provider materials to the NSTIC Guiding Principles. Joni is working with Joe Grubbs / TFTM to work the Kantara IAF material through the analysis tool. Results will come back to IAWG when ready.
LC Updates
  •  no update
Participant updates
  • no update


  • Recap from FICAM update call that preceded IAWG call:
    • Need to map SAC 3.1 to the new FICAM TFS and ATOS material
    • Industry question - what is the timeframe for conformance for current Approved?
      • FICAM indicates that TF Providers have 6 months from (February 2014) to bring their TFs in compliance with new TFPAP version.
    • Furr has created a comparison spreadsheet to the TFPAP and ATOS material for the sub-group to work with (LOA1-3)
    • Need this to ARB to Board of Trustees by August
  • FICAM TFS will have monthly meetings going forward
  • TFS presented a new approval process flow - some steps may already be performed by Kantara - we need to work towards clarity 
  • Sub-group will do work off-line and when ready will bring the material for review to IAWG for review
Progressing the SAC White Paper
  • Brief overview of the attached proposal
    • Noted that the FICAM TFS mapping will impact timeframes for this work
    • Resourcing details TBD, but first course is via IAWG participants
    • The two work activities are interrelated - must determine what mandatory dependencies between them, and what could be fit into the deadline window
  • Noted that if FICAM TFS comparison work (prior agenda item) results in SAC changes we must consider 45 day public review period in the deadline window.
    • Need to consider viable options


Next Steps:

  • Rich, Richard and Scott will coordinate to break up the SAC and complete the comparison spreadsheet, then bring back the spreadsheet to IAWG for discussion
