      2. Pilot Holistic Review Candidates Evaluation

a. Poll Results

- See the attached files for the poll result details.

- 6 responses for 19 candidates – Team can discuss the candidates based on the ranking, but it is not the decision-making factor (The poll is to be just a guidance, NOT the decision)

- The results were show the ranking 1-7 (list below)

b. Candidates Evaluation

- 7 candidates were ranked in the following order based on the poll results:

  1. Anil Jain
  2. Marie Pattullo
  3. Julf (Johan) Helsingius
  4. Mark Datysgeld
  5. Caleb Ogundele
  6. Tony Holmes
  7. James Gannon 
  • Discussion points:
  • The SSC Chair pointed out that Mark Datysgeld was one of the last SSC members, if a need to consider when allowing for different people to participate.
  • Geographic criteria does not seem to be considered within this result and may need a different approach
  • Any term limits for these candidates? – No. Subject to the duration of the project as it will be more like a PDP/WG.

 c. Suggested List of Candidates

  • Discussion points:
  • How should the evaluation process proceed was discussed, and a suggestion was to select the top 10, then drop to 7 (or top 12) based on the region, participation, recent project, etc.
  • A suggestion that Diversity must be put into consideration as regions cannot be left unconsidered was raised and agreed upon by the members.
  • Each member shared their rankings and they are as follows (in the order of ranking):

    • Karen: Tony Holmes, Anil Jain, Bekono Pascal, Caleb Ogundele, Emmanuel Vitus, Gbadamosi Gbadamosi, Sophie Hey, Poncelet Ileleji, James Gannon, Julf Helsingius (4 from Africa, 4 Europe, 1 NA, 1 AP) – Mark Datysgeld was dropped as he was our last appointee.
