Good Morning!

Just a few things in the update today from Federation:

1. The Foundation has posted two RFPs for ESIP website development:
- ESIP Commons: Phase
- Multi-site integration<https://docs.google.com/a/esipfed.org/document/d/1TXPhrxZCZOUnwcx1O30a6JtYxCtEubsfEhVvQMJ7OtI/edit>

If you are interested, submit a proposal to me by Friday, Aug. 31.

2. The newly formed ESIP Commons Work Group is drafting a vision and
the ESIP Commons. Would love to have the larger community take a look
and edit as necessary. Thanks in advance!

3. The Data Management Short
in the final stages of module development. All modules have been peer
reviewed and are now going through an editorial review. We expect the final
modules to be posted by the end of Sept. Here is a peak of what the
first finished
module <http://commons.esipfed.org/node/537> looks like. The team will have
an update call, this Thursday, 12 EDT. See the
calendar<http://esipfed.org/telecons>for call details.
