    • Technical Reviews. ToneyMinter and MarkClaussen report that the technical reviews are in good shape and should be finished by Friday. ToneyMinter will manually enter one technical reviewer's reviews but this should not be a problem. With the help of BarryClark they will vet these by the time we release info to the SRPs (3 September). Also, BarryClark will send VLA/VLBA conflicts for the SRP telecons sometime today.
    • Science Reviews. All reviewers have accepted conflicts. The SRP chairs have been reminded of the deadline. Most SRPs will be complete by 1 September. A few will be delayed a couple of days.
    • SRP Telecons. All dates have been finalized. JessicaUtley has notified the SRP chairs of any logistical issues (e.g., SRP member will only attend one day, etc.). Two support (moderator and technical) people have been schedule for each telecon. JessicaUtley will send the phone number of the other moderator (SarahWood) who will be in a private room.
    • PST Status. All PST review items have already been released and the PST should be ready to go.
    • PHT Items. JenPlank has released three items for testing. Once the dust has settled with technical reviews BarryClark will start testing these items. Before the TAC meeting PaulMarganian and RickLively will test GB PHT communications.
    • TAC Meeting Logistics. There is still uncertainty about who will attend the TAC meeting but there are at least a couple (internal and external) who will not attend. Having video is desirable but it appears that external folks will need a polycom system (e.g., Skype does work for video; audio only). MarkClaussen has a helpdesk ticket for IT support with the AOC auditorium reserved.

  • AOB
    • DDT Page. There is a DDT page that list accepted DDT proposals. It is only complete for VLA. DanaBalser proposed to remove this page since this info can be found on the PFT. He will send a link around to the TTA list as an example.
    • VLA Prioritizer. ClaireChandler noted some issues with the VLA Prioritizer from the User's committee concerning the correlation between the SRP score and priority. She plans to hold a meeting to discuss improvements. It would be useful to (1) add a check box in the PST that indicates if the proposer really needs all of the time to do the science; and (2) calculate in the PST the LST min/max for the user based on the source list positions (already a JIRA ticket that has been worked on).
    • User Database Duplicates. GarethHunt in the near future will begin deduping these duplicates.
