Subject: [802SEC] motion to forward P802.16/D4-2001 for Sponsor Ballot
In July, the 802 SEC granted "Conditional Approval" to forward
P802.16/D4-2001 to Sponsor Ballot upon completion of Confirmation
Ballot #3b. The ballot concluded yesterday. The outcome is documented
in these two reports:
*IEEE P802.16 Confirmation Ballot #3b Comment Resolution Report
IEEE 802.16-01/42 <http://ieee802.org/16/docs/01/80216-01_42.pdf>
*IEEE P802.16 Confirmation Ballot #3b Voting Report
IEEE 802.16-01/43 <http://ieee802.org/16/docs/01/80216-01_43.pdf>

successfully and that no recirculation is required. As as result, the
Chair declares that Working Group Letter Ballot #3 has concluded
successfully as of 3 August 2001."

authorized to continue to Sponsor Ballot because we have failed to
fulfill one of the stipulated conditions of approval: namely, no new
Therefore, with Letter Ballot #3 complete but lacking authorization
to forward it for Sponsor Ballot, I must come back to the SEC for
such authorization. I would therefore like to place the following
motion before the SEC for an email ballot: "To forward
P802.16/D4-2001 for Sponsor Ballot".
I respectfully request that the email ballot close by noon Eastern
time on Friday August 10. This would give us an opportunity to launch
Sponsor Ballot on Friday afternoon and thereby have it close hours
before our September meeting begins.
