- Costs: Each SME's district is responsible for labor costs incurred for this initiative. TDY costs will be required for a 1-week content development/update workshop if the page content requires workshop attendance. No additional TDY requirements are anticipated. SME activities will be conducted using telephone conferencing, web casts, and electronic mail as much as possible.
- Equipment & software requirements: Each SME's district shall provide access to a PC typical of that used by NRM employees in the district represented, with Corps standard software and Internet access. This does NOT have to be a dedicated machine, as the NRM Gateway is to be designed for accessibility from any standard Corps PC.
- IM Support: If problems are experienced accessing the site, or if software (i.e., Adobe Reader) upgrades seem necessary to view content, each SME Team member shall coordinate first with their local IM representative to resolve the issue. If the problem cannot be solved locally, contact the NRM Gateway Web Developer.
