[gnso-improvem-impl-sc] SC starting to do its job.
Hi, I was given, as a reason for why the GCOT needed to do some rework on the GCOT recommendation on proxy and SOI/DOI that had already been approved by council, that this group had not yet been fully formed and could not, therefore, take on work. Since I firmly beleive that once a proposal has been made by a WT, approved by the OSC or PPSc and approved by the Council that it becomes the task of this group to review it if there are any problems or issues. Certainly the chartering steering committee can send it back to the work team if they do not approve - and we have seen that happen. And certainly the Council can send it back to the steering committee if they d not approve or have questions, and we have seen that happen. But once it is approved by the council, I do not think it appropriate to hand it back to the Work Teams. And certainly it can't be handed back directly by council to WTs, but must be handed back by the appropriate steering committee. Though I would also find it inappropriate to hand it back to the steering committees, which are supposed to be blinking out of existence taking on re-work stuff that has already been approved by the council. As I understand it, that is the job of this group. But in any case, to hand work back to the steering committees would require a council motion, would it not? So, back to my question, what is preventing this group from beginning to do its job? We have members (I assume, might be good to see a list of who is subscribed). We have a mandate from the council. We have a list. All we seem to be lacking is the catalyst to start and perhaps a first meeting to elect a chair (or co-chairs) and get started. As far as I can tell, the work is beginning to pile up. Thanks a.
