Baseline Funding Levels

As of 2014-05-01 the baseline funding levels per fiscal year are as follows:
  • ALMA: Budgeted for Cycle 0 as 8 awards each for the maximum amount of $35,000, or $280,000. As ALMA is currently on a one-call-per-year cycle, we will use an entire FY allocation for each proposal cycle. Current cycle to FY assignments are as follows:
    • Cycle 0: FY2012 (budgeted as 8 awards at $35,000 each, or $280,000)
    • Cycle 1: FY2013 (budgeted as 8 awards at $35,000 each, or $280,000)
    • Cycle 2: FY2014 (budgeted as 11.5 awards at $35,000 each, or $405,000)
    • Cycle 2b: FY2015 (budgeted as 6 awards at $35,000 each, or $210,000)
    • Cycle 3: FY2016 (budgeted as 15 awards at $35,000 each, or $525,000)
  • NRAO: 16A: FY16 (budgeted as $150k shared between two semesters)

  • Total Allocated: $405,000
  • Total Available to Allocate: $405,000
  • SOS Proposal Review System

Meeting Notes

  • The committee determined that, as all of the SOS proposals involved highly ranked ALMA proposals, the science is considered equally sound in all cases, and decisions for SOS awards should be made based on student involvement, student seniority, and the availability of other funding sources. Also, some consideration was given to the number of recent SOS awards to particular departments and/or individuals, and whether there remained funding in those awards.
    • Murphy & Pascucci -- reduce awards based on standard undergraduate stipends (after checking with PI that this amount would still be of use).
    • Blandford -- tuition not allowable, removed from total allocated
    • Bolatto -- remind PI that international travel not covered
    • Pascucci -- overhead too high. PI agrees to negotiate with department to cover.
    • Bally -- noted that travel request is very low, email to verify additional funding available to cover one domestic conference
    • Ferland -- travel to NRAO for data reduction not covered, award reduced by $1500, but will notify PI that NRAO Visitor's Program will cover that travel

Meeting Notes

  • Capped proposals (due to existing 13A SOS grants):
    • Koda: Limited to $35,000 - $13,000 = $22,000.
    • McLaughlin: Limited to $35,000 - $23,400 = $10,700.
    • Sokoloski: Limited to $35,000 - $1,500 = $33,500
  • Allen: Notes in budget justification that student cost is $40,800, which includes tuition. Says that shortfall from stipend request of $32,000 will be covered by STScI Director Discretionary funds. Send note to Allen requesting confirmation that DD funds have been committed. If Allen cannot be funded then fund Mutel instead.
  • Devlin:
    • Check to see if student fees are allowed by program rules.
    • Ask him about his student stipend math. Final numbers are:
      • Stipend: $28,400
      • Travel: $2000
    • Note that $1000 have already been redacted as observing trip travel is funded by another NRAO program.
  • Sokolosky: Capped at $33,500 as she has a 13A SOS grant of $1,500.

Meeting Notes

  • Greg recommended that we be more forceful about the request for "related awards". Replace with "current and pending awards". Need to make this change in both the PST and T&C. JGM asked Dana Balser to add it to the PST task list for 13A. See the PST upgrade list for details.
  • Committee wondered about alignment with ALMA. ALMA wants to run SOS as "one pot", which is consistent with committee desire.
    • After the telecon John Hibbard, Tim Bastian, and JGM met to discuss SOS funding for FY2013 (unrelated to alignment issue). John noted that for Cycle 1 TAC recommendations should be available by mid-November. This is on the same timescale that NRAO 13A proposals should be ready for review by the SOS committee. So, alignment looks quite possible for Cycle 1 / 13A.

Meeting Notes

  • Committee recommends that no funds be allocated unless data actually acquired. Discussion with Al Wootten after meeting came to the conclusion that this is not workable as ALMA Cycle 0 will run until June 2012.
  • In light of the ALMA recommendation for computing hardware necessary to reduce ALMA data, Committee discussed disconnect between SOS T&C limit of $3000 and cost of ALMA recommended computer hardware. Decided to impose $3000 cap, but recommended that ALMA put in place system which allows for remote access to computing hardware which will allow for the analysis of ALMA data.
  • Committee needs to have same information as provided for NRAO telescope SOS proposals with future ALMA SOS proposals. Will try to parallelize process for ALMA Cycle 1.
