KI approach to GSA process and procedures documents

Project Plan Outline

 

 

 

Description of Overall Approach


The GSA Office of Government-wide Policy has been working on updating the governance process and procedures for the Trust Framework Solutions (TFS) Program and   has released the Trust Framework Solutions Program Concept of Operations (ConOps) and Certification Process drafts on November 17, 2017.

 

The ConOps outlines the mission, goals, and objectives for the Trust Framework Solutions Program, Trust Frameworks, and their respective members.   The Certification Process outlines the process for initial and continual certification process for Trust Frameworks and their associated community of interest/credential service providers.

 

TFS Community needs to provide feedback by December 22, 2017 and KI IAWG has started to coordinate the review and preparation of comments on ConOps and Certification Process drafts.

 

In light of the GSA new process and procedures, there is a need to create a specific sub-group, with goals that include, consolidation of new requirements, evaluation of impacts on the Kantara’s Trust Framework Operations Program (TFOP) and recommendation of concrete actions towards a smooth implementation.

 

Therefore, KI proposes this project plan outline that includes two phases, 1) provision of comments to GSA and 2) prepare a list of requirements and recommendations for Kantara’s TFOP

 

Scope

 

·           Gather comments from KI community and provide feedback to GSA on ConOps and Certification Process drafts.

·           Produce a list of requirements from ConOps and Certification Process drafts.

·           Analysis of impacts on Kantara’s TFOP.

·           Identify KI internal procedural amendments and changes to TFOP.

·           Make recommendations on revision of TFOP process and procedures.
