Budget & Metrics    Slide Updates

-Before slide 2 need an introduction to transition to new topic

 RonDONE

-Slides 4 and 5 will raise questions; have a list of contributing factors:

  • non-FTE budget as an explanation (explains NCSA)
  • Unspent hardware investment; emergence of public cloud acceptance holding for that transition–will hear more in Ops discussion
    • add another color for hardware line
  • Source of what the projected is
  • Travel will increase with PEARC
  • Projection is not based on reality
  • Use annual for projection rather than 6 months
  • Purposes for underspending
  • Staff turnover – would be good to have data on that for hiring lag
  • Year 1 partners were spending down carryover from prior award
  • Need to then answer the question what are you going to do about it
  • TACC explanation for lean amounts
  • Authorization to spend in February, and award award processing takes time
  • Emphasize the % under spending rather than value and how that calculates into weeks (5 weeks?)
  • Large award
  • Illinois takes back unspent funds; whatever carryover allow to keep either 2 months average spend up to a max of $200k so some money is tied up in that carryover
  • Managing responsibly
 RonDONE

-Provided TACC projected amounts with explanation for lean amounts

 Dave6/8/2018

-Trends for L2s to consider–should be talking about these things–qualitative or quantitative data observations

    • Does XCI campus interaction equate to institutions deploying?
    • XCI Instrumenting software components to determine usage?
    • CEE champions, trainings, student preparation, PI interactions, etc.
