Subject: Re: [emergency] EDXL/CAP Survey

Hi Len,

CAP is now included in GJXDM, so RFPs contingent on the GJXDM are 
also axiomatically contingent on CAP compliance within GJXDM, if 

DHS will likely stipulate CAP in its applicable RFPs. the Public 
Forum for the Data Reference Model yesterday included CAP because it 
was part of the pilot we (Starbourne) will be doing for the Semantic 
Interoperability Architecture effort for September. I will keep this 
group apprised of that work as it proceeds.

EDXL is likely to be a key piece of NIMS as it gets built out. We are 
hammering on the Distribution Element again today.
