Subject: Re: [ubl] Proposal for UBL 2.0 Extended Procurement Process Model

Thank you very much for your ideas.

These have been incorporated into the latest version of the document. I
have a personal view on your final suggestion (see below).

You should see from the minutes of the Pacific call this week that we
have decided to adopt the three layer hierarchy as presented in your paper
(with some chnages in terminology).

Having finally settled on adopting separate spreadsheets for
"procurement" and "tranportation", i suspect any further granularity
will be too contentious for our timeframe. But, of course, we may
revisit this when the models are built.
