  1. Bryn Rhodes Per PMO/HQ review, the following fields need to be completed:
    HL7 Managed Project Document Repository URL


    Work Group Approval Date

    1. Trying to edit takes me to a New PSS, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong there. The project was approved 5/8/2019 at the Montreal WGM, Wednesday Q1 (Minutes: 2019-05-08 CDS WGM Minutes Montréal)

      I'm not sure what is meant by Lineage, I don't see a field for that?

      For the project document repository, I haven't requested that yet.

  2. Dave Hamill , okay, I made what I think are the correct changes.
