Launch of the O-TTPS Accreditation Program
The group discussed the plenary slot – O-TTPS Overview – followed by a discussion panel with Allen Brown and Andras (IBM), Edna (CISCO), Fiona (atsec), Joanne (NASA), and Erin (EWA-Canada). Plaques were provided to IBM for first accredited for their Application, Infrastructure and Middleware (AIM) Software Business Division. Plaques were provided to atsec and EWA-Canada for first O-TTPS Recognized Assessors.Interviews are being lined up (pre and post-launch) with Andras, Fiona, Edna, and Sally. Webcast scheduled for Thursday February 13 with Andras, Edna, Dan, Fiona, and Sally will be presenting. There will be Q&A after the presentation. The session will be recorded.
Lessons learned from the Pilot were captured and will be posted to the OTTF Plato site. Some of them will need to be addressed via work groups (e.g., simplification of the ISCA Document) – others had been captured already as Problem Reports.
One of our major focus areas for the Member Meeting in San Francisco on all three days of the member meeting was reaching agreement on recommendations for Change Requests (CRs) to the O-TTPS. We used a spreadsheet with a row for each CR, as the basis for this activity. We recorded whether it was a CR or PR to be included in 1.1 or postponed to 2.0. and if it was to be included in 1.1 then we provided a proposed recommendation. In the spreadsheet there are a variety of submitted CRs:
- Rows 2-28 are CRs that were submitted to the 1.0 Review Process but were rejected as changes for that now published version and instead recorded for consideration for the next version of the Standard.
- Rows 29-50 are CRs that were submitted by James Andrews on behalf of the EOC (Evidence of Conformance) Task Group as that group worked through the evidence of conformance – and what would later become the Assessment Procedures.
- Rows 52-60 are Problem Reports (PRs) that were recently (within the last three months) submitted to the Problem Reporting Process and were categorized as Interpretations – which means they are Problem Reports against the Standard.
