Hello all,

I have uploaded an updated version of the secretariat document. There is still one fundamental question we have to clearly answer: 

- Are we still going to contract the secretariat via an Independent Organisation (considering  the opinion shared by Theresa)? 

If yes, who will that be? Will we need an RFP to select the third party contractor? How  will we select that such entity that will be sufficiently independent for every one? 


- a.
