Operations Committee (OPCOM)
An Operations Committee (OPCOM), created as a sub-committee of Scientific Committee (SCICOM), dealt with operational issues, such as ship scheduling, technological development, and scientific measurements. OPCOM's responsibilities included providing SCICOM with drilling schedules based on SCICOM's proposal rankings, advising SCICOM on short-term logistical and technological implementations of highly ranked scientific programs, as well as longer-term technological requirements for implementing the ODP Long Range Plan.
"OPCOM is responsible for recommending the schedule of the drilling vessel over a period that may exceed one year, based on SCICOM's ranking of proposals. It will receive, and act upon, reports from the service panels and TEDCOM, and under guidance from the Chair, advise JOI accordingly. OPCOM will advise SCICOM on short-term logistical, technological, and budgetary implications of scientific programs highly ranked by SCICOM, and on longer-term technological requirements for implementing the ODP Long Range Plan."
