Agenda Item 5. DEAM 1200

Need to support creation of understandable documents on Timeline, Training for managers and staff, and a Checklist. Will the DAC get to review and serve as a sign-off on the final edits to DEAM 1200? Include language “The DAC does not consider our comments in the submitted advisory to be all encompassing and request to be a sign-off on the final version.” We want to include that language because our comments are based on the current DEAM 1200 that we know has already undergone edits that we have not been privy to.
