How does the staff assist standards developers in their work?
Staff Liaisons are assigned to standards groups to guide them through the process of developing a standard. They can attend meetings and provide current information on policies and procedures. The IEEE-SA Standards Board support staff members oversee the process of submitting project authorization requests (PARs) and completed standards for approval. Staff also provide a standards balloting service, along with marketing and promotional services. IEEE Standards Project Editors review drafts of developing standards, work with standards developers to ensure that drafts are proceeding on the right track, and also prepare the finished documents for publication. The IEEE Standards Electronic Services staff create tools for on-line standards development and dissemination.
