The Coordination Team directs and reviews the efforts of the three workgroups, which are listed below. Each workgroup consists of members with subject-matter expertise from various entities in an effort to bring important and varying perspectives to build on collaborative findings to pursue the next steps identified in the Study. The Phase 1 objectives of the Workgroups, along with the plan to achieve those objectives, can be found in the Phase 1 Work Plan.
