Steps Completed by the LIO for the 2018 Action Agenda Update

  • The LIO Coordinator worked with the Action Agenda Coordination Group to refine elements of the NTA Solicitation for the Implementation Plan of the 2018-2022 Action Agenda Update.
  • In November 2017, the LIO Implementation Committee held an Information Session on Near Term Actions and Regional Priorities for the 2018-2022 Action Agenda for potential project sponsors to answer questions about the solicitation, local process, and regional priorities.
  • In January 2018, the LIO Implementation Committee held an NTA Development workshop for project sponsors to help them understand the technical aspects of NTAs that accelerate local and regional priorities.
  • In March 2018, the LIO Implementation Committee will hold an NTA Refinement workshop for project sponsors to offer assistance with refinement of their proposals as well as offer an opportunity to collaborate if they missed the January workshop.
  • In late April/early May, an NTA Review Team of local experts will evaluated and tiered over 100 NTAs (including local and regional) for a final recommendation for inclusion into the Action Agenda.
  • On December 5, 2018, the Leadership Council adopted the 2018-2022 Action Agenda. A formal launch of the Action Agenda will occur in early 2019.
