ETSI budget, including STF budget, approved at GA#80












If the request concerns the continuation of an existing STF activity, the Reference Body (RB) must provide an overview of the results achieved and resources spent by the previous STFs in this domain.

The ToR must provide a detailed description of the work to be done and an accurate estimate of the maximum budget required to perform the work.

The ETSI Secretariat will make a consistency check of the STF request and may come back to the RB Chair with comments and/or proposals to improve the ToR and/or the presentation of the business case to the OCG/Board.  If it is not possible to achieve an agreement on the consistency check, the document will be submitted to the OCG/Board consultation according to the instruction of the RB Chair but with comments from the Secretariat.

The STF requests must be approved by the Reference Body before being submitted to the OCG/Board. 

Given the time constraints if the draft ToR have not  been approved by the Reference Body before the submission of the proposal, then the approval calendar must be identified in the ToR.
