This page contains the details of Change Proposal (CP) processing in the ITI domain for the 2015-2016 publication cycle.
The ITI Change Proposal process follows the general IHE CP process described on the Change Proposal process page. The following sections give more detail on the process for folks involved in the CP process in the ITI domain.
The ITI-specific CP Process
The following text explains what the process used by the ITI technical committee in processing submitted CPs. It is consistent with the general IHE CP process and is informative only.
- Write a change proposal. Here is IHE's Change Proposal Template
- Submit into the Incoming directory. This is typically done by directly updating the directory if you have access; otherwise send it an email to the ITI Technical Committee members in charge of CPs (currently Lynn Felhofer).
- The new CPs are considered by the committee at periodic CP review calls. If CP is accepted it is given a CP #, assigned an editor, renamed to CP-ITI-xxx-00.doc and placed in Assigned. If CP is rejected it is moved to Rejected and submitter is informed of explanation for rejection. Likely reasons for rejection are: duplicate, merged, withdrawn or not enough information to understand the request. Rejected CPs can be resubmitted with more information for reconsideration.
- Committee works with editor to draft the CP. Versions are kept in Assigned directory and numbered -00, -01, -02, etc.
- Committee decides CP is ready for ballot. Latest version of CP is moved to Completed diretory and old versions are moved to old_versions.
- Co-chair collects Completed CPs into a ballot. The Ballot directory will be used for this.
- Ballot is released to the general community for voting for 4 weeks
- Votes and comments are collected. All yes votes means the CP passed ballot and moved to FinalText. No votes are resolved by the committee. Sometimes CP is withdrawn, sometimes NO voter changes to yes vote after explanations. CP may be updated in this process. If updates are insignificant (clarification only) the CP is considered passed. If updates are significant the CP is submitted for another ballot.
- CP approved in ballot are put in FinalText and scheduled to be integrated into the Technical Framework or Supplement.
As CPs are processed through various statuses they move from one directory to another. The directories involved are:
- contains CPs which have been submitted but have not been assigned a CP number or an editor. This is the place that new incoming CPs are placed prior to the first stage of processing by the committee.
- contains CPs that have been assigned an editor and are being actively worked on by the committee, i.e. Assigned status
- contains the last version of a CP that is in Completed status. It is waiting to be put in a ballot
- contains the last version of a CP that is in FinalText status. It is has been approved by ballot and is waiting to be integrated into the TF.
- contains the version of the CP that was integrated into the TF.
- CPs that have been submitted by rejected by the committee
- contains CPs that have been canceled, i.e. Canceled status
- contains Ballots that have been released for voting by the general community
- contains spreadsheets describing the status of CPs.

ITI CP Tracking
Location of CPs, and CP status
All Change Proposal management is done on the IHE ftp site here.
Since March 2015, the ITI tracks status of its Change Proposals on the "CPs tracking" tab in this google doc: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gdr_Y8xZBvbb326J4z67cqprxOexFgtkPj_VlD3rB9E/edit?usp=sharing
Approved CPs to be integrated in 2016
CPs that have passed ballot in this cycle, and that will be integrated into Version 12.0 of the Technical Framework and the 2016 version of Supplements in September 2016 are listed on the "Ballot Log" tab of the tracking spreadsheet.
In Aug 2016, CPs will be integrated & checked following this process (currently draft): ITI CP Integration Process
