This paper reports on progress and plans for all meta-components of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) observatory control system (OCS). After an introduction to the scope of the OCS we discuss each meta- component in alphabetical order: application, engineering and facility database, maintenance, monitor, operator- remote, scheduler, sequencer, service abstraction layer and telemetry. We discuss these meta-components and their relationship with the overall control and operations strategy for the observatory. At the end of the paper, we review the timeline and planning for the delivery of these items.
