I think the current arrangement is fine and working. Fred is the official liaison person between IETF, NIST, SGIP.  If any group within IETF wants to send an official liaison letter to SGIP or NIST, unless IETF poly does not allow that, nothing prevent the chair from doing so.  ITU-T has been sending liaisons to the chair of SGIP plenary, to me as the chair of PAP15, so is ATIS.  The important thing is to get things done or information transferred, and any of us from NIST or SGIP official will try hard to make it happen.

Fred could also arrange someone from the related SGIP WG to coordinate with EMAN WG if necessary.

What we have in place is that Ross Callon and I are considered liaison managers by the IAB, we have a directorate in place, and we talk with each other. If NIST wants a more formal relationship, it will be some expansion of that. Tim Polk can be a party to making that happen. However, I didn't know NIST wanted a more formal relationship?

I copied the presentation on this, for the benefit of those added to the CC line.
