Although we certainly appreciate you posting this here, it's not an official priesthood channel for communications. Relatively few people will see this post. Will there be an official announcement made through stake presidents? Or at least in a Meetinghouse Technology Newsletter?
Also, I don't really understand the lines of authority involved, but when you say that the "ICS End-User Productivity team has made the recommendation to Facilities Management" does that mean that the FM Groups are bound by this recommendation (within budget limitations, of course), or that each FM Group has the option of ignoring this recommendation?

Clerks should certainly NOT be contacting the FM. It might be appropriate for the STS to contact the FM, but some FMs will only talk to the PFR.
