Federation Policy Mapping
This work is picking up on one of the recommendations from the barriers to service providers study to find common clause recommendations for federation policies. It:
- Maps existing policies against content blocks and elements that can appear within those content blocks;
- Provides a visual guide showing which elements are used by which federations;
- Makes recommendations for good practise in federation policy for R&E federations.
- The study will only review federation policies that are available in English and that single document, or close to single document format (not including technical or assurance profiles).
Available here as an excel spreadsheet.
