Action items:
2015-006: Recommend development of MATLAB interface for MUSTANG
Responsible: Tim Ahern
Status: On hold until resources can be found. Will revisit at later time.

JUL2016-002: DMC will start generating network reports for the AK network and one temporary network that Vadim has (X8): They will provide feedback to Mary and the QA team at the DMC.
Responsible: Mary Templeton and Natalia Ruppert
Status: AK Network has been receiving monthly reports and acknowledges usefulness as a double-check. UU network reports are now in progress for broadband and short period instruments. IRIS does not have the manpower to produce these reports for every network, so we are moving forward to create tools that network operators can use to perform QA.

JUL2017-001: Reach out to National Strong Motion Center, Menlo Park, for suggestions on good quality assurance metrics for strong motion data.
Responsible: Mary Templeton
Status: Mary contacted Chris Stevens and there is no concensus on metrics at this time. Will establish a channel of communication with NSMP (Chris Stevens and Lind Gee) to continue discussion and get recommendations when they become available.

NOV2017-001 - Quality Principles Adherence review by future membership of QAAC.
Responsible: Bob Woodward
Status: the QAAC is invited to comment on the google docs version of the Quality Principles, which will remain open for the next week. The QAAC will send out a poll that asks QAAC participants to rank QA priorities.
