Questions & Answers
How do I submit an issue to the UBU?
First, you need to develop an issue paper. Click here to obtain the Issue Paper Template. Then you need to submit to your Service POC for evaluation. It is their job to review the issue, ensure that they understand the proposal. Your Service POC then assesses the issue to see if they can either provide an answer/solution outside the UBU, or identify a more appropriate functional proponent to work the issue.
If it is decided that the UBU is the appropriate group to address the issue, then the issue paper is sent out to all Service members to review prior to the quarterly UBU meeting. If the nature of the issue is urgent, the UBU members may address outside of the quarterly scheduled workgroup meetings. To obtain the name and contact of your Service POC, refer to the membership roster at the top of this page.
