What the DMAC ST needs from the IOOC • Guidance (criteria?) on how to proceed with next steps • suggest ST moves forward on 1-2 specific priorities • suggest ST activates “tiger teams” to frame options and IOOC helps identify participants • Organizational support for broader engagement on DMAC • suggest ST members identify key POCs for IOOC members to contact • suggest IOOC members share ST reports, etc. with IT/data management leadership in their organizations • Support for mapping DMAC priorities to upcoming IOOS Summit • suggest asking ST for volunteers for an IOOS Summit DMAC team • suggest a ST member begin attending IOOS Summit planning meetings March 1, 2012 – COL, Wash, DC DMAC Steering Team
