Resolve Author/Institution Issues - Part III: Relax requirement to have valid institution before submission

NRAO Interactive Services Modification Request 8C408, October 2008

1. Introduction

When adding authors to a proposal, the user can select authors from the database. If the author is not listed the user can add information and they are contacted to register. In some cases the institution is not listed or not detected by the user and therefore the added author does not have a valid institution. Currently, a proposal cannot be submitted without a valid institution.

2. Background

Many help-desk items last cycle involved problems with authors trying to submit a proposal with an invalid institution. This constraint should be relaxed. Attached is the email from Dale Frail.
