hi Bruce

Can you tease out for us, or could other Board members, a little more
detail on the fifth point - the budget process.

I accept and believe that we can and should make efforts to be economical
with this work, and in particular to make use of professional assistance in
a reasonable and well-planned way that minimises costs.

I also think a project budget, reasonably constructed, would be good to do,
in collaboration with the CCWG.

If more resources were found to be needed, it would make sense for instance
to have a request for such validated by the chartering organisations.

In other words, a pretty normal project finance structure that provides
some constraints.

Is that what you and the Board have in mind?  Or some thing else?

What do others think?
