[802SEC] FW: [STDS-WG-CHAIRS] Baseline Operating Procedures for IEEE Standards Working Groups ? Individual Method

Fellow EC Members:


So the fun begins!  Please see the notice below concerning WG P&P.  Some
groups are further ahead than others in addressing this emerging issue.
I plan to start some discussion on the EC reflector this weekend on a
path forward.  Right now I favor using the Baseline WG P&P and a base,
breaking our WG P&P rules out of the LMSC OM (now enforce), and
augmenting the Baseline WG P&P with the material from the OM where it
does not conflict.  This would then become a global WG P&P for all IEEE
802 WG, and it would be up to WG if they want to have an WG OM to
specify additional rules (or not).  By the way, this is probably a good
time to revisit how WG operate within IEEE 802 and consider any
revisions we would like.


I am willing to host teleconferences roughly monthly (consider this
tentative notice for teleconferences at 11 AM EDT on 5/1, 5/29, and
6/26) to discuss WG P&P issue. I don't think we need anything more
intense that that, and plan to conduct most of the dialogue on the LMSC
reflector, and at the July Plenary as to a path forward.  If it becomes
too much of a burden on the LMSC reflector, I will break it out as a
private discussion group (with notice to the reflector so anyone can
participate) and periodically report to the reflector on recent


Please feel free to comment on these plans.

Subject: [STDS-WG-CHAIRS] Baseline Operating Procedures for IEEE
Standards Working Groups ? Individual Method


The "Baseline Operating Procedures for IEEE Standards Working Groups -
Individual Method" (WG P&Ps) were approved by the IEEE SA Standards
Board on 29 January 2009 and become effective 31 March 2009.  All
working groups shall update their P&Ps to conform to this baseline
document.  The IEEE-SA requires that these procedures (Baseline
Operating Procedures for IEEE Standards Working Groups
<> ) be adopted intact,
with modifications of some clauses allowed as indicated. 

Sponsors are expected to ensure that their working groups have P&Ps and
that these P&Ps conform to the Baseline WG P&Ps.  The Sponsor has the
option of developing one set of P&Ps for all of its working groups.
Working groups should check with their sponsor chair/standards
coordinator to confirm how to proceed before beginning this update of
their P&Ps. 

The current active WG P&Ps shall be located on the Sponsor's web site
<> .  It is the
responsibility of the Sponsor (see the IEEE-SA Standards Board
Operations Manual, subclause 5.1.2
<> .) to approve
the policies and procedures of its working groups involved in the
technical development work of a standard.   

The IEEE SA Standards Board's Audit Committee (AudCom) may request at
any time to review one of a Sponsor's WG P&Ps and will as a matter of
routine begin randomly auditing these procedures beginning in June 2010.

If you have any questions regarding implementation of the Baseline WG
P&Ps, please contact the AudCom Chair Ron Petersen at <>  or the AudCom
Administrator Lisa Yacone at
<> .
