This consultation is open from Monday 27th September 2021 at 17:00 CEST to Monday 25th October at 17:00 CEST
For a number of years, REFEDS has operated solely from an annual workplan, with items being added annually in consultation with the community. Whilst this has allowed REFEDS to be somewhat agile in delivering and highly consultative with its community, it has not addressed issues such as the core purpose of REFEDS and it's high-level direction.
To this end, the REFEDS Steering Committee has prepared a draft Strategic Plan for REFEDS and the community is invited to comment on this proposed document.
This consultation will be open from Monday 27th September 2021 at 17:00 CEST to Monday 25th October at 17:00 CEST
Participants are invited to:
- consider the proposed Strategic Plan
- propose appropriate changes / challenges to the proposed text, and
- reflect on whether the plan is representative of the strategic position of REFEDS.
|comment #||Line/Reference #||Proposed Change or Query||Proposer / Affiliation||Action / Decision (please leave blank)|
|1||28-33||Propose changing Critical Success Factor #1 so it reads more about "engagement" through the meetings, discussion lists, and Slack Channels. "Attendance" feels like just counting people in seats at meetings (unless this factor is defined in a parent document).||Mark Rank - Cirrus Identity|
|2||28-44||Propose the Critical Success Factor (CSF) "Sustainable Standards Development Process and Adoption" be the #1 CSF. While the others are important, standards development and adoption feels like the most critical (unless this order is defined in a parent document).||Mark Rank - Cirrus Identity|
|3||12||Request clarification of the term "Research Infrastructures". It is not clear if projects like LIGO or CILogon are "Research Infrastructures" and thereby in the primary audience or are SPs and therefore in the secondary audience.||Scott Koranda - CILogon|
|4||38||Sudden appearance of the term "academic federation". If this is the same as "R&E ... federation" in line 6 then it should use the same term. If it's different, then the difference needs to be explained||Andrew Cormack - Jisc|
