Approved: Response to IEEE-SA Balloting Survey

Ballot Approved: 8-0-0 (Yes-No-Abstain). I have edited based on
comments(below). I am in Japan next week, but will send out from Japan. If
anyone has any comments on my edits, let me know, as the ballot is still
open officially, but I wanted to get this out before going to Japan.

The IEEE 802 LMSC responds to the balloting survey with the following

The invitations to ballot should be sent only by the means by which the
ballot will be conducted (so that in the case of electronic ballots, we are
sure that the email address of the balloter is accurate). The balloting
center should stop using paper based systems for communication
with its customers except in the case of paper ballots.

IEEE-SA should not MANDATE that all Sponsor Ballots be conducted through the
balloting service:
    +IEEE 802 does support encouragement for all groups to use the IEEE
Ballot center.
    +There may be circumstances where a different ballot approach is

Codify in writing procedures for Electronic Balloting, in particular define
all critical path dependencies external to the balloting service.
    +Check list for submitters
    +Check list for IEEE-SA staff

The IEEE-SA balloting service should set up metrics on their performance and
report these metrics at the quarterly standards board meeting.
    + Turn-around time (recommend a 24-hour goal) for ballot service
processes (e.g., time from sponsor approval to invitation, time from
balloting closing to reporting of results )
    +Number of ballots conducted, and other statistics.
