Subject: RE: [tgf] Consulting Engagement
Thanks for raising this important point – and not an easy one to deal with….
My quick take would be that this has little to do with the core OASIS business model: OASIS makes its money from a “pay to play” model for the development of standards and are certainly keen, through various channels to see them taken up and used; but OASIS has no role in nurturing specific SoW’s or contracted work for any party wishing to benefit from the expertize of a TC member or organization: that is usually down to the members themselves to shoulder.
That said, I’m copying in OASIS’ business development manager who has recently talked to the OASIS Board about better ways of promoting the results of our standards work and getting greater traction and buy through, for example, specific marketing groups or campaigns.
The specific sector we are concerned with her e- the public sector in their “post eGov strategies” has been notoriously difficult for us to address. We have had several discussions about how to do this and, certainly, ideas such as white papers, a common slide deck of key issues, case studies, etc. can all help that.
Carol – thoughts?

I`m wondering how governments are enabled to engage with the TGF? I presume they can join OASIS and then the group, but then what?
This would suggest a consulting engagement - Is this supported and if so how?
Resources for this could include:
- Marketing white paper
- PPT deck
- Template documents for SOW engagement
- Template Competency Framework
