Is There Anybody Out There?

The TMF Reference Model was last updated in June 2015 so you may be thinking that all has gone quiet and nothing is happening. You couldn’t be farther from the truth! We currently have TWELVE sub-groups working on various initiatives concerning TMF management, involving around 90 members of the TMF Reference Model project team. These teams are all meeting as need to push forward their project. The ‘TMF Quality Control‘ group have completed their work and recently presented their draft output to the Steering Committee. The ‘Milestones’ group also presented their interim work to the Steering Committee to check they were aligned with the set objectives.

You can find details of all of the current work groups in our Roadmap but here’s the complete list:

  • eTMF Interoperability (eTMF Exchange Mechanism)
  • Reference Model Implementation Toolkit
  • Annual TMF Survey
  • Reference Model Upgrade User Guide
  • Metadata
  • Recommended Dating Conventions
  • Single-site Reference Model Template
  • Artifact Sub-types
  • Inspection Preparation
  • Milestones
  • Country-Specific Artifacts
  • TMF Quality Control

Some of these groups are nearing completion of their objectives but if you have an interest in getting involved, please contact us and we’ll put you in touch with the team lead. You need to be a member of the TMF Reference Model project team to join a team.
