17B Proposals. Two similar VLBA proposals have been submitted by the same PI. RickLively notes one is a SHAO sponsored proposal. MarkClaussen will have a look to make sure there are not any issues. This evolved into a larger discussion about SHAO sponsored proposals and the difficulties in communication. GarethHunt noted that SHAO has been awarded more than 100 hours per year which caused some concerns. The MOU implies that this number is a minimum so in principle more hours could be allocated. The cost per hour is then small relative to other sponsors. Regardless, we should do a better job of communicating how these proposals are coordinated and assigned time. DanaBalser and MarkClaussen will talk with LewisBall.
Helpdesk. Six PST helpdesk tickets have been submitted thus far; no major issues. About 20 Account helpdesk tickets have been submitted thus far; GarethHunt reported that there are still some issues with the email field being null for institution requests. The recent software changes have not worked, at least in some cases.
PST Review Items. RickLively will start working on these soon.
PHT Requirements. No action this week.
SRP Recruitment. MarkClaussen reported that as far as he knows there has been no changes from last week. We still have 5 vacancies (2 AGN, 2 NGA, 1 SFM).
