AH pointed out the draft plan requires wordsmithing to ensure it is not perceived as government only, has a greater focus on innovation and to overcome various perceptions of what is CGDI. Consider using the CCOG SDI Summit as a test for government response. Consider arranging a side meeting for review during Geomatics Atlantic.
