  5. Fiscal and Strategic Planning
    1. Lead Committee Assignments for Commission Projects: 
      Chairman Jacobs explained the process that transpired to develop the Working Draft document the group reviewed.  The document describes the IJJC's assignments, projects  and planning. The task for the day is to set priorities and  assign responsibilities. Each IJJC Committee will be given a  priority list and the task of determining hierarchy of that list.  It was noted that this is a broad budget and we have  $850,000 from FFY11 that must be spent by SFY15.
  6. The Tier system was chosen as 1-3, meaning: 1-Must; 2- Later; 3-No. Tier 1 will then be prioritized. The following are the priority areas chosen:
