Technical Plans | HTRI

A Technical Operating Plan (TOP) is developed primarily by the staff, with input from the Technical Committee, Task Forces, Communication Committees, and the membership as a whole. HTRI management reviews such suggestions and, as appropriate, formally defines projects for addition to the TOP.

The technical planning cycle includes

  • a preliminary version of the Technical Operating Plan (TOP), drafted by the staff
  • solicitation of comments from the Communication Committees as well as from the membership at large
  • presentation of a plan to the Technical Committee for discussion, review, and modification
  • posting of the plan on the HTRI website for further comments by the Technical Advisory Committee representatives

After any significant issues are addressed, HTRI staff prepare a proposed TOP for the Board of Directors to approve.
