The ERG Committee began reviewing the BMGT Plan at its meeting in February 2015. The committee summarized its initial questions and concerns with the Plan and responded back to BMGT in early April 2015. ERG met with representatives of BMGT on April 24, 2015 to discuss the Plan. BMGT sent additional questions to the committee in May 2015, and the committee continued to work with BMGT in the 2015-2016 academic year. BMGT sent a revised Plan to ERG in late fall 2015. The ERG Committee reviewed the revisions in January 2016 and sent additional questions to BMGT. In February and March 2016 ERG and BMGT worked together to create a final version of the Plan. The ERG Committee approved the final version on March 26, 2016.
