SRP Telecons. There are difficulties finding an ETP chair who can accommodate the SRP telecon window because of two topical meetings during this period. We agreed to extend the SRP ETP telecon window until 21 September since we had already pushed back the TAC process one week. This will be tight for ToneyMinter due to travel conflicts during this period.
ECT Update. RickLively reported a fix released for the ECT that added the confusion limit to the PDF.
PST Review Items. The only item was to not perform technical reviews for GBT/Mustang 2 proposals; we will extend the software used to handle such cases for the VLA/VLBA.
PHT Requirements. RickLively will organize JIRA for the PHT 18A. AmyMioduszewski will prioritize the list based feedback from others. BarryClark recalls there are some tickets from last time that would be nice to do (e.g, conversion , configurations, etc.). MarkClaussen will add tickets for the VLBA for generating the pressure plot and issues with pre-committed time. ToneyMinter reports no major updates to the GB PHT except to add the new back-end.
SRP/TAC Recruitment. LewisBall reports that we have filled the SSP SRP chair vacancy. He is still working on the ETP SRP chair with issues concerning the SRP telecon schedule (see above). Main.Claussen reports the following for the SRP recruitment:
ETP: invitation to standard vacancy; supplemental vacancies: none filled, some declines; 2 invitations.
TTA Meeting: no meeting next week (13 July).
Joint External Proposal Metrics. BarryClark will report on whether or not the 17B triggered proposals that did not receive VLA time were triggered or not.
SRP Balance Strategy in 18B. We agreed that we should formulate a plan to deal with the SRP balance issues by the 18A TAC meeting. The plan is to get feedback from the TAC on our plan and to implement something in 18B. We need requirements to DMS by November 2017.
GMVA 17B Status. We are waiting for confirmation on the "AUI decision" from GBO/LBO directors. DanaBalser will send results to the GMVA scheduler. We discuss how to streamline the process in 18A and agreed to discuss this offline.
