Re: Govt Policy on Stds & IEEE 802 BALLOT: $4K Funding for FCC to attend
Please read carefully the OMB Circular that Jim has distributed before
you vote on the motion regarding the $4K allocation to pay for FCC
My read of it brings forth (in my opinion) the following points:
1) It does
not apply to ITU, therefore we should not necessarily follow FCC
precedent for dealing with T1 which is the US TAG for ITU (a treaty based
applies to both using standards based products AND to setting regulations
which align to standards.
Agencies MUST participate in relevant standards activities.
cost of participation is a normal budget item for the agency
Just my opinion, but I believe that the circular indicates that it is
unnecessary and inappropriate for us to pay.
