What This Team Will Do: Preliminarily, the WG has determined that a framework for predictability and change control may help mitigate the destabilizing effect from unforeseen issues encountered after policy implementation and/or program launch. Some elements of the framework could include determining what factors should be predictable (e.g., outcomes, timeframes, input from the community, etc.), expectations for what could cause change and the scope of an acceptable level of change, how fundamental changes are dealt with, etc. This drafting team will prepare a set of draft outputs that will considered by the full WG.

How This Team Will Work: This drafting team may employ a variety of mechanisms to address its work. It is anticipated that the drafting team will complete its work primarily over email, collaborating via Google Docs, and occasional meetings. Meetings will be recorded, the email list archived, and the group will utilize public workspaces (i.e., Google Docs, Wiki).
