TAC Report/Disposition Letters. The GBT proposals were not all listed in the PHT due to a bug. This has been fixed but ToneyMinter may not have the GBT letters ready by Friday (13 November). MarkClaussen is almost ready to draft the VLA proposals; he needs to manually edit some (e.g., HSA). BarryClark will generate drafts shortly. Since the NSF proposal deadline is Monday (16 November) we really want to get these out by Friday. The current plan is to release them all at the same time and not stage them. DavidFrayer noted that from his experience Universities need to sign off on these proposals before they are submitted and therefore the proposal has to be finalized about a week before the NSF deadline. It was unclear if most Universities would not allow any changes to the proposal at this stage.
PST Status. DavidFrayer reported that 5 of 13 PST 16A items have been tested. MarkClaussen will test the 4 VLBA items. GarethHunt has provided some feedback on the 3 User Database items ready for testing.
PST Review/PHT Requirements. The plan is to discuss PST Review items on 19 November and the PHT items on 3 December. The goal is to have all items in JIRA before the meeting. DavidFrayer (PST Review) and GustaafVanMoorsel / BarryClark (PHT) will send an email to the TTA group when everything has been entered. Please review these before the meeting.
SRP/TAC Recruiting Status. TimBastian will send out emails today; MarkClaussen solicited suggestions from the staff; and DavidFrayer has a list ready but will wait a bit for other names before he sends out any emails.
