Subject: Response to TBG3's Resolution 3 from the UBL Transportation Subcommitee

Dear Dominique, Henk,


The UBL Transportation Subcommittee is surprised and also disappointed that we have failed to communicate our intention with regard to accommodating the concerns of TBG3 following the recent public review of UBL version 2.0.  Given our limited time and resources we have had to restrict the scope of the business processes covered by UBL 2.0.  This is not to say we do not recognize the limitations TBG3 have identified, only that we could not address them in a meaningful way in time to meet the UBL 2.0 schedule.  In fact, UBL version 2.0 is now completed and currently being ratified by OASIS, to be published in December 2006.

It is regrettable but true that the participants in the UBL Transportation Subcommittee are mostly self funded and so attending face-to-face meetings is not always feasible.   This has been unfortunate.  For example, had UBL been able to participate in the recent Barcelona meeting of TBG3 we might have avoided such a misunderstanding of our intentions.

Be assured, UBL is committed to moving its work into CEFACT.  We believe we have a formal agreement with the CEFACT Plenary to do this. Accordingly, the UBL Transportation Subcommittee is committed to working collaboratively with TBG3 on future developments, and wishes to work together to find constructive ways to do so given the practical difficulties of face-to-face meetings.

One such development could be the extension and refinement of the Transportation Status document.  This appears to be a worthwhile task that would allow us to take an existing UBL document together with implementation experience from the US Dept. of Transport's EFM project and develop both a business process and data model consistent with both TBG3 and UN/eDocs.  The resulting artifacts can then be submitted as UN/CEFACT deliverables.  Such a work programme mirrors a similar collaboration between UBL and TBG1.

To conclude, the UBL Transportation Subcommittee takes Resolution 3 from your Barcelona meeting very seriously.  Whilst we do not believe we have acted incorrectly in these matters, we do believe a more proactive approach in communicating our intentions accurately is essential.
