STF must report to the reference TB and to the funds provider, if funded by the EC/EFTA or voluntary contributors.
There are three type of Reports:
- Progress Report, to be presented to plenary meetings of the reference TC or WG, according to the Milestone schedule that has been defined in the Preparatory Meeting.
- Interim Report (only for STF funded by EC/EFTA), to be presented at a date defined in the EC/EFTA contract, around mid-term of the Action and to be approved by EC/EFTA (also defined in the Preparatory Meeting)
- Final Report, to be presented to the reference TB together with the deliverables for final approval, for STFs funded by ETSI. To be submitted to the EC/EFTA after the publication of the deliverables and before the end of the Action, for STFs funded by EC/EFTA.
The STF Leader is responsible to produce and present the Reports.
The draft deliverables with the level of development that has been defined in the corresponding Milestone must be uploaded on the TC contribution area and referred in the Report. If the expected level of development has not been achieved, the reasons for the delay must be explained and corrective actions proposed.
The achievement of a Milestone will trigger the payment of the work done by the experts. If a Milestone is not achieved, the reference TC Chairman, the STF Leader and the STF Manager will review the corrective actions and the revised time scale proposed. If these are agreed, payment will be made when the corrective actions have been implemented and the requirements set in the updated milestone schedule have been achieved.
