I am currently working on said plan - I have met with and bnefed RMD and have a tentative plan that I williforward to you (ASAP) That plan was Icreated in anticipation of this request, so it needs to be reworked to fit the actual request I believe their (OMC's) target date to be totally unreasonable
1 I , 1 , I 'MOW already has a file created for OMC requests I will confer with my MDLU counterpart, who arnves on ionlimorow' s flight to determine if that file is specific to discovery issues If you prefer an OGC file I wilt, start the process fOr opening it ' I 1
