Subject: HAVE draft comment posted



I and others on and off the OASIS EM-TC would like to post a recommendation that the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) Naming and Design Rules (NDR) be adopted and applied to the HAVE committee draft.  My understanding is that, although a consistent convention was used to name the elements, no formal NDR has been followed for HAVE or for Resource Messaging (RM).


Please note that not adopting the NDR does not prevent use of NIEM to develop exchanges using EDXL standards; however, the difficulty for practitioners may be increased otherwise.  I realize that this feels Federal government-driven, but I don’t see a down-side since the particular semantics applied should not negatively impact the International community. 



·         Use HAVE as the starting point to begin applying a published and consistent naming convention across the EDXL standards

·         Promote reuse and facilitate simpler and more seamless use of NIEM for the development of IEPD’s and implementation of exchanges using the EDXL standards.

·         Provide a straight-forward avenue and mechanism for state and local organizations to comply with grants language which specifies NIEM and EDXL


We do not feel that the specification should be held up; HAVE should proceed into the 60-day comment period with this and other comments that have been posted.  If adopted by the TC, recommend that the NIEM NDR be adopted for the draft Resource Messaging and subsequent standards, and possibly to the Distribution Element when a successive version is put forth.


I welcome any comments or feedback.  I will be on the call Thursday at 4:45.  Because HAVE is pending committee vote, I don’t know where this comment should be formally posted.  Please advise and I will ensure that gets done.

Subject: [emergency] Call for quorum - Thurs 11/2 4:45PM EST


Dear EM-TC Members,

We did not have a quorum for our meeting yesterday and we would like to get the HAVE moved forward to public comment, as well as review/approve the meeting notes for the past few meetings.  We had our meeting which is summarized in the notes that will be uploaded for review but without a quorum, we were not able to do any business.  We will plan to have a short meeting on Thursday just before the Msg/Not meeting on Resource Thursday evening at 4:45PM EST.  The EM-TC part of the meeting should only last 15 minutes if everyone can be prepared to vote on HAVE.  If you have any issues on the draft as it is posted or corrections to the meeting notes for the Sept and Oct meetings, please post them to the list as soon as possible.

PS - The EIC meeting will be today Nov 1.  You can dial in to 800-320-4330 pin # 327547
