ABPSC — Discussion Paper cover disclaimer

  • Key: ABPSC-36
  • Status: open  
  • Source: cebe IT & KM ( Claude Baudoin)
  • Summary:

    (Note: I thought this had been entered early in the life of the ABPSC, but I can't find it)

    The boilerplate disclaimer on the cover page of a discussion paper considerably weakens the authority of the paper. While it is appropriate to tell the readers that the paper is not a specification or other Board-approved deliverable, the disclaimer fails to recognize the value of a paper developed by members, often at considerable effort, and reviewed and approved by a Task Force.

    The suggestion is to balance the current text by including more positive encouragements to treat a Discussion Paper as the well-considered opinions and/or recommendations of a body of experts. I am not proposing specific replacement text right now, but would be willing to participate in this effort if the issue is deemed to have merit.
