During the ad-hoc call, we came to consensus on the language below for
dominance and the ombudsman.
1) For dominance, some of the text is base on our superior rules
(i.e., that suspected dominance is reported promptly to SASB)
2) We decided to add the Ombudsman as a non-voting member of the EC.
Hence, the term, appointment, etc., is already covered in the text for
other non-voting members.
If you have any comments on the text, please send them to the reflector
for discussion so we can achieve agreement prior to Bangkok.
If a Sponsor Subgroup Chair suspects that an authorized activity is
potentially dominated, as defined in the IEEE Standards Board Bylaws, or
receives a complaint of dominance, that Sponsor Subgroup Chair shall
report the complaint or suspicion the Sponsor Chair. The Sponsor Chair
shall promptly notify the Chair of the IEEE SASB of the suspicion or
The Sponsor Subgroup Chair shall then investigate the suspicion or
complaint and present a report to the Sponsor with recommend actions(s).
The Sponsor Subgroup Chair may appoint a panel to perform the
investigation and prepare the report.
If the Sponsor determines that an authorized activity is dominated, the
Sponsor may direct that the votes of individuals in the dominating party
shall be treated as a single vote for the purpose of that activity. The
Sponsor Chair shall notify the Chair of the IEEE SASB of the action.
If the Sponsor determines that other actions should be taken in response
to the dominance of an authorized activity, the proposed actions shall
be forwarded by the Sponsor Chair to the Chair of the IEEE SASB for

Ombudsman, shall be posted on the IEEE 802 website.
A copy of all IEEE 802 LMSC-related complaints received by the Sponsor

the attention it deserves. The Sponsor Ombudsman is responsible for:
