Committee’s Report to HITSPMarch 13, 2006

  • Provided update on Committee’s Activities to Date

  • Emphasized the need for additional guidance from the HITSP Board and Panel

  • Obtained HITSP response - “to ensure our Technical Committees have the data that they need, we will modify the Terms of Reference for the Inventory of Inventories Committee to modify their scope to produce just that work that is immediately needed to support our 2006 Technical Committee deliverables.”


Next steps

Next Steps

  • Committee Lead, Audrey Dickerson, plans to obtain additional guidance from LeRoy Jones, new HITSP Program Manager

  • Committee may continue to collect and categorize Standards lists from all sources or restrict to inventories of standards from sources with lists from multiple sources, i.e. ANSI or CHI.

    • Refine category definitions and listing of standards within seven categories

  • Continue to explore how the NIST Landscape can support Inventory of Standards Inventories
