[council] Schedule/Timing of AoC Reviews

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to suggest at least on practical point to address the 
issues of coordination between Reviews and with other policy efforts, 
and hope to make this discussion move forward in Helsinki, or even 
earlier in the Council

1. AoC Reviews have moved now to the By-laws. In my view this requires 
regular and consistent “information” of all the Reviews over time, 
for the benefit of all the individual Reviews, as well as other policy 
2. The Reviews Information should be regular, succinct and independent 
of specific efforts in the Corporation to comply with previous review 
recommendations. In other words a comprehensive yearly report on the 
status of the 4 Review streams (work in progress, follow -up of previous 
recommendations, challenges) should be made available to the community.
3. The report should be produced by a SOs/ACs secretariat of sorts, that 
also takes the timing-coordinating-budgeting responsibility of the the 
review efforts in a way, so that Review Teams can start their work in a 
more efficient manner

Happy to volunteer for further work on this issue, as I have personally 
seen the large startup-up and coordination problems in two review 
efforts already.

Have a nice Sunday
