Use Requirements Evaluation and Prioritization
XSEDE gets requests from many communities for tools, services or capabilities that would make research easier for their stakeholders. Periodically, members of XSEDE's Requirements and Capability Delivery (RACD) group prepare Use Cases, which describe the requested tool or service, and Capability Delivery Plans (CDP), which outline the proposed method to implement the tool or service, along with an estimate of the work required.
The Use Requirements Evaluation and Prioritization (UREP) working group helps to prioritize which of these requests will be implemented. UREP members review the Use Cases and CDPs and to rate them for their usefulness to the community, taking into account the amount of effort that will be needed to complete them.
UREP is composed of members from various XSEDE stakeholder categories: Campus Champions, the SP Forum, the User Advisory Committee and XSEDE staff.
We gathered some commonly asked questions (and the answers) in the UREP FAQ. Note this link will take you to the XSEDE website.
