    Group Reports - May 2003

        Access Task Force Final Report, Phase I (3/19/2002)

Task Force on Access Reporting Principles

The purpose of each Working Groupís report is to lay out a plan of action to achieve their goal.  The plan of action should be either in at least two sections, short term (1-2 years) and long term (3-5 years), or presented as a continuum indicating actions that are dependent on others to be performed over a span of years within the constraints of initial choices made.  In addition to this plan of action, the report should describe the context in which the recommendations are made, major assumptions and even questioning of the charge or goal if this is warranted, and, if possible, resources (human and technical) needed to carry out the recommendations.  The outline of each report should roughly conform to what follows in order to facilitate amalgamation of the recommendations into an Access plan of action.  

I.                    Introduction (reiteration of goal, interpretation of what implications this has for the groupís work, possible overlap with other groups, assumptions, other contextual information) 

Then either: 

II.                 Short term (1-2 years) plan of action, indicating expected time each item will take and resources needed, dependence on or overlap with other working group plans 

III.               Long term (3-5 years) plan of action, indicating expected time each item will take and resources needed, dependence on or overlap with other working group plans 

Or 

II.                 Plan of action along a time continuum, indicating expected time each item will take and resources needed, dependence on or overlap with other working group plans or other events 

and then followed by  

Conclusion (summary, caveats, etc.)
