>INCITS Secretariat
>Dear INCITS Technical Committee and Task Group Members,
>The InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS)
serves in two major roles: 
>    * SDO - INCITS provides a low cost, ANSI accredited process for
developing US National Standards. 
>    * TAG - As the US TAG to ISO/IEC JTC 1, most of the JTC 1 Subcommittees
and Working Groups, and ISO/TC 211, INCITS represents US interests in ISO and
ISO/IEC JTC 1 activities.  
>INCITS members participate in the development of standards and exercise US
TAG responsibilities including the ability to influence global ICT standards
decisions through their participation on US delegations to international
>INCITS Secretariat services are provided by employees of the Information
Technology Industry Council (ITI). The INCITS Secretariat supports the
progression of standards through the domestic SDO process through the
establishment, maintenance and oversight of the program's ANSI accredited
procedures and processes.   In response to the INCITS community's interest in
getting our standards into the hands of the broadest base possible, most of
the INCITS standards are available in electronic format for $30. 
>The Secretariat serves as the US TAG Administrator in monitoring and
distributing international issues and documents to ensure timely US
responses. INCITS serves as the US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) for ISO/IEC
JTC 1, 2 Special Working Groups of ISO/IEC JTC 1, 14 Subcommittees of ISO/IEC
JTC 1, 61 Working Groups associated with those SCs, one ISO TC and 5 Working
Groups in ISO.	INCITS provides the financial support for the US-held
international Secretariats administered by ANSI (JTC 1, JTC 1/SC 22 and JTC 1
Special Working Group on Directives) and INCITS/ITI (JTC 1 Special Working
Group on Accessibility).  
>The INCITS program is funded largely by participation fees.  Executive Board
dues and fees were increased in 2003 with the decision to merge INCITS with
the JTC 1 TAG.	Technical Committee and Task Group fees have remain unchanged
since 2001.
>During the course of the 2006 INCITS strategic review, it was acknowledged
that the existing IT infrastructure was outdated and no longer met the needs
of the INCITS community.  Comments from participants at the annual TC
Officers' Symposiums have echoed these concerns.  
>We have reached a point where we must raise TC and TG service fees to fund
the INCITS Secretariat services, meet our commitments to US participation and
leadership in the international standards community by funding the US-held
international Secretariats administered by ANSI and INCITS/ITI, and build the
modern IT infrastructure necessary to provide the INCITS members with the
services they need and deserve.   A demonstration of an IT infrastructure
solution will be presented during the July 16-17, 2007 INCITS TC Officers'
>The Executive Board has agreed that the 2008 budget should anticipate a
significant IT infrastructure investment and that revenue must be increased
to cover the anticipated expense.  At the April 2007 INCITS Executive Board
meeting, the following new fee structure was approved for 2008:
>2008 Fee Structure (by organization) 
>    * TC/TG Service Fees 
>	 * $1,200 TC or 1st TG if not member of TC 
>	 * $ 400 Subsequent TG 
>	 * Alternates 
>	     * Eliminate fee for additional alternates 
>	     * No limit to number of alternates 
>Although the INCITS Secretariat and Executive Board regret this necessary
fee increase, we are confident that INCITS remains the most cost effective
forum for developing domestic standards and influencing ISO/IEC JTC 1.

>Jennifer Garner
