Many tasks have begun but some of them are still in need of coordination (e.g., assignment of POC, lead organization). Q2 Report: 58 of 91* Tasks Reporting 33 of 91* Tasks Not Reporting 11 tasks with Leads and TPOCs assigned did not report 11 tasks have Leads but no TPOC, and did not report 5 tasks have no Leads 2 tasks were completed in Q1 or Q2 2 tasks were postponed *The original number of tasks was 96, but 6 tasks (in Energy) were consolidated into one 06 Task Reporting Overview
