The Network Architecture, Operations and Policy Program Advisory Group (NAOPpag) met on September 14, 2016. Wendy Huntoon, PAG co-chair, opened the meeting. Jay Plasterer provided an Internet2 financial update and indicated that Internet2 is focused both financially and programmatically on the top goals identified by the Internet2 Board Program and Priorities Committee--the Internet2 Network and Trust and Identity. Jay indicated that directing investments toward the two major areas of focus more directly ensure that expenses are in alignment with a slowing revenue growth. Decisions that support sustainability include scaling back on professional services, adjusting staff investments and seeking facilities changes.
