Other Comments:<br>
The IAWG completed a large amount of work affiliated with the accreditation and
certification program and anticipates close review/use/modifications of this
material as KI enters into its pilot program with IAF certification.&nbsp;
Additionally, several more documents are pending release and we anticipate
several more reaching draft stage in Q1 2010.&nbsp; Participation remains
strong across geographies and verticals, with excellent collaboration.&nbsp;
The numerous draft documents currently in process in our &quot;working drafts&quot;
section&nbsp;continue to&nbsp;drive the bulk of our meeting discussions, with a
major new work item focused on Federation Operators Guidelines.<br clear=all>
