I think the conference is a great idea. I would be happy to volunteer to
present more background on FISMA and System Accreditation, if desired.

Subject: New VA FISMA Requirements for PIs in Research Institutions



For those of you who do research with the Veterans Administration, have
any of you been able to gather specific requirements for the very recent
requirements to comply with FISMA? As some of you may know, we have been
given requirements, and not much time to become compliant!

I have some reference documents:
and http://csrc.nist.gov/policies/FISMA-final.pdf, and

If some of you are interested, this might be something that we could
organize an audio telecon around.
