Thanks, Marika.  My comments:

Work plan:   has to be consistent with the overall timeline to reach the May 24, 2019, Temp Spec ultimate expiration, so that overall timeline should be included in the Charter.
Membership criteria:  
agree with Michele that basic understanding of privacy should be included here.  However, I also think opening the EPDP with some basic training will help ensure everyone’s on the same page.
Do we need to call out that observers do not contribute to consensus process?  I realize it will functionally be impossible to do that, but just to be clear.
Board liaisons:  I’m not sure what rationale there is for 2.  1 fulltime plus an alternate makes sense.  But I also don’t see a problem with 2.
EPDP Leadership:  I suggest the Council establish the structure and leave it to the EPDP Team to select the members.  The Team will be more effective if there is buy in as to who is taking leadership roles.  Michele suggested Council approve the selection.  Under what circumstances do we envision a member being unsuitable for the leadership role?  If Council isn’t approving members, instead trusting SGs to select appropriate participants for this very significant EPDP, I think we also need to trust the Team to select the appropriate leaders.

Dear All,


As discussed during today’s extraordinary Council meeting, staff has gone ahead and prepared a template for the EPDP Initiation Request as well as the EPDP Team Charter (see attached). As there is some duplication between the Initiation Request and the Charter, staff would like to suggest that you focus your attention on the EPDP Team charter for now. Once elements such as scope and team composition have been agreed on, these can then be lifted from the charter into the EPDP Initiation Request. Also note that staff has taken the liberty to prepopulate some of the sections of the charter to facilitate your deliberations. These entries are either based on existing charter language / practices / procedures and/or aspects that have come up in the context of the discussions to date, including the PDP 3.0 conversations. In addition, staff has flagged some items highlighted in yellow that will require further feedback before draft language can be added. Of course, it is up to you to edit / delete / add as you deem appropriate. If there is anything further that staff can do to facilitate your deliberations and drafting, please let me know.


Best regards,
