IETF 86 IAOC Overview Session

Orlanda, FL, USA

March 10-15, 2013

Date: Sunday, March 10
Time: 15:00 - 16:50
Room: Caribbean 6

The IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) will hold a session to provide an overview of the IAOC to allow the community to better understand what the IAOC does, how the finances work, and provide the IAOC feedback on the job they are doing.

The IAOC's responsibilities include:

- Managing the IETF finances
- Oversight of the IETF Administrative Director (IAD)
- Selection and oversight of contracted services
- Venue selection and operation of the IETF meetings
- Support for the IETF's IT services (data tracker, web sites, tools, etc.)

Based on the open mike discussion at the last IETF meeting we think that this will be a useful way to provide more information to the community than can be done in the plenary.

The topics that will be discussed include:

- BCP101 - Structure of the IETF Administrative Support Activity (IASA)
- Operation of the IAOC
- Financial model and relationship with ISOC
- 2012 Financial Summary
- Q & A

We hope this will improve the community understanding of how the IAOC works and provide the community an opportunity to provide feedback to the IAOC. If this session works well we will repeat it periodically.

Please let us know ahead of time if you have specific questions you would like to see discussed.

Bob Hinden
IAOC Chair
