  • The “Issue & Decision Log” provides "Agenda" items for the Project Working Group meetings.

Committee Outputs: Minutes, Issue & Decision Log, Reports

  • Each governance group communicates its actions and decisions to “Committee Outputs: Minutes, Issue & Decision Log, Reports.”
  • Actions and decisions from “Committee Outputs: Minutes, Issue & Decision Log, Reports” are input to the “Issue & Decision Log.”
