[802SEC] Resolution from IEEE-SA Standards Board re financial reporting

Dear EC members,


The SASB met this week and produced a resolution as shown below,  on the failure of the LMSC to provide its

financial reports in a timely manner.   802 EC members were excluded from the meeting that approved this resolution,

although we (Paul, Clint, Steve, Jon, Andrew, …) were present for some of the discussion,  up to the point where they

realized they should deem us conflicted.


I believe being cited by the SASB as failing in our duty warrants an agenda item in the EC to discuss corrective actions,

and this item may need to be held in executive session.   I therefore ask for such an item to go on the agenda at some time

during the week.


The resolution is at:

and states:


11 June 2015 

Resolved that,

The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) has failed in its duty as a Sponsor to complete the 2014 LMSC annual financial report in a timely manner. Therefore, the following corrective actions are approved by the SASB:

1.     IEEE-SA staff is instructed to set up requested departments in NetSuite and to keep the NetSuite database unlocked until Wednesday, 17 June 2015.

2.     The LMSC Chair and the LMSC Treasurer shall complete the 2014 LMSC annual financial report and certify that the reported financial data is materially correct on or before Wednesday, 17 June 2015. All audit material shall be made available to the auditors by 30 June 2015.

3.     The LMSC Chair and the LMSC Treasurer are instructed to provide a plan to meet the schedule shown in item 4. This plan shall be submitted by 30 June 2015 and shall be acceptable to IEEE-SA staff and IEEE-SA Treasurer.

4.     After completing the 2014 LMSC financial reporting as outlined in item 2 above, the 2015 LMSC financial data shall be entered in NetSuite with the following timeline:

o    For Q1 and Q2 2015, the financial data of LMSC shall be submitted through NetSuite by 31 July 2015 and 31 August 2015 respectively;

o    For Q3 2015, the financial data of LMSC shall be submitted through NetSuite by 15 November 2015;

o    For Q4 2015, the financial data of LMSC shall be submitted through NetSuite by 15 February 2016.

o    Complete certified 2015 financial data for LMSC shall be available in NetSuite no later than 15 February 2016.

5.     If the SASB determines that the LMSC Chair and the LMSC Treasurer have failed to satisfactorily execute their duties for the 2014 and/or 2015 LMSC annual financial reporting per the schedule outlined above, the SASB reserves the right to pursue any and all additional actions that it deems necessary to bring the LMSC annual financial reporting into compliance with its operating procedures. Such actions may include removal of specific LMSC Officers and/or suspension of all LMSC Sponsor activities (potentially including, but not limited to, new and modified PAR approvals, Sponsor balloting, approval of standards, meetings, etc.) as described in IEEE-SA Standards Board Operations Manual 5.3.6.
