  • 20B
    • VLBA in Active Triggered/Large Pages. MarkClaussen reported that he still has not gotten to these pages but will have time to do so in the next week. HeidiMedlin will remind him.
  • 21A
    • Call for Proposals
      • NRAO. DanaBalser reported that the Introduction, News & Opportunity, and Joint Proposals sections should be ready. EmmanuelMomjian reported that the VLA page is ready. MarkClaussen reported that the VLBA page has been sent out for comment. The GMVA folks have signed off on the updated language for the GMVA part. We briefly discussed that it would be good to better highlight that we offer staff assistance for novice users. We agreed to add a few sentences in the Introduction which is displayed in the email. MarkClaussen and EmmanuelMomjian will update the Introduction and run this past DaleFrail.
      • GBO. ToneyMinter reported that the GBT CfP is ready to go.
    • PST CfP Ticket Status. We briefly discussed the remaing tickets (see below). RickLively noted that we should complete any testing by next week so that he can deploy these on the following Monday (6 July 2020). LorantSjouwerman asked about the software deployment environment. RickLively said the environment has not improved yet (they do plan to get new laptops in the future), but he sees no issues with production since it should behave like webtest. Nevertheless, we agreed that it would be best if RickLively asked for permission to come into the office, if necessary, at any time on the CfP (6 July 2020) and deadline (3 August 2020) days. He will ask permission from MarkMcKinnon and copy DaleFrail.
      • SSA-6267 New GBT Large Proposal Constraints: A small refinement to the requirements was made. RickLively will update the software and release for testing.
      • SSA-6348 Joint GBT SOFIA proposal: ToneyMinter will have a look at the updated version on webtest.
      • SSA-6459 remove "radar backend" from GBT resources: ToneyMinter will have a look on webtest.
      • SSA-5309 Update gender input in PST: AnandCrossley needs to review the updated version on webtest.
      • SSA-6266 Redo Station Selection for GMVA: We briefly discussed whether to completely removing the ability to copy a GMVA propsoal or only for pre-21A proposals. At this stage we agreed it was best to just disable the copy for GMVA proposals and if time permits add some inline comments. We do not expect many GMVA proposals (no ALMA in 21A).
    • SRP/TAC Recruitment. MarkClaussen reported that he only has 3 vacancies (SFM, AGN supplemental, and EGS) with two invitatioins out. AmyMioduszewski reported that she has had lots of rejections but currently only has 2 vacancies (SSP and PCO) with one invitation out and is negotiating with another. We briefly discussed the fact that we have three outgoing SRP chairs in 21A. MarkClaussen has dicussed this with DaleFrail and the plan is to ask a few chairs to stay longer. MarkClaussen also noted that he plans to discuss review issues with the one volunteer who complained about the current process.
