FW: IEEE 802 & IPF

Below is a note from Steve Oksala regarding IEEE 802 and the potential loss
to ANSI JTC1 of the IPF fee. I sent an early warning to ANSI so that they do
not make false assumptions on their budget for year 2000. I told Steve I
would forward this note to you-all.

No action is needed or requested by the SEC at this time (and we will have
plenty of time to discuss this at our November meeting) and draft the
carefully worded memo.

I would urge you and 802 to not be hasty on this.  First of all, I think
everyone is aware that secretariats get committed on a one year basis; so I
would hope that 802 would not take action that would leave the rest of the
community in the lurch.  Second, I would like to think that the whole
situation would get evaluated - if 802 drops funding, presumably it is also
dropping the TAG responsibility.  And with nobody else involved, that would
also mean dropping the secretariat for SC 6 and potentially even the P
membership.  I don't know what the answers are, but I would like to see a
total plan and not just one that abandons a system that IEEE had previously
signed up for and which, under the rules of the road, IEEE is still
obligated to meet.

Steve -

I suppose this should get a document number for posting to the Finance
Committee agenda for December.  This would have a significant impact on
income through IPF collection.  I also assume it is time to start
discussions with regards to continuation of US administration of the SC 6
if a large body of its US community no longer intends to provide financial

Please let me know your thoughts.  If  you want this posted to the agenda,
what  do we want to title the agenda item?

Thanks in advance -
