Agreed... we have given a schedule based on information being available, the
information isn't so the timetable may need to be reviewed as there is little
for the Committee to do at the moment, but as mentioned I hope the information
will be available soon.

As mentioned in MV, I am not in favour of this approach simply because having a
process for selecting the research centre on such an important issue will be
very time consuming and challenging.  I would much prefer we publish our interim
report and the raw data and then have peer review which will include (most
probably) a multitude of research centres, individuals, organizations etc. that
the process will be open, transparent and bi-partisan.

It may be an idea to ask ... to better understand the options available and if
the task is too challenging for the WHOIS Committee we may need to explore that
path further.
