3. SP Level Definitions (Shawn Strande

Previously:

  • (9/11) Added to agenda; Summary of proposed SP level definition revision sent to SMT by Shawn.

Discussion:

  • (9/13) Shawn - revisions for SP Levels. L1s large allocated systems. L2s digital service, may have allocation. L3s provide resources or information to the community. Elevate L2 SPs that allocate by mandate (Track 1, Track 2, MRI, etc.)
  • Craig - approve of changes; emailed examples
  • Bob - SDSC clarification on L2 vs. L3. SDSC is a member by virtue of Comet...BioBurst application necessary or not?
  • Dave - the proposed revision shows that Comet could be a member as an L1...SDSC could apply as an L3
  • Bob - I like that
  • Shawn - just because your "level" drops doesn't meant you drop off the Forum. Would hope that the process of applying doesn't get in the way of joining the Forum
  • Dave - XSEDE is actually its own SP via ECSS as an allocated resource as an exofficio member
  • Shawn - good idea, in many ways ECSS is taken for granted
  • Craig - suggestion to change "one or more digital..." to "one or more cyberinfrastructure service"
  • Shawn - L1s and L2s have a CI allocation or service, L3s are opportunities to be listed as part of the XSEDE community
  • Emre - L1 could be an organization...if the organization has multiple resources, would they be listed separately? Organization vs. Resource is still not cleared up
  • Dave - an L1 could be an organization or resource. SP is the L1, L2, or L3. They provide resources that are allocated by XSEDE to separate the division of labor. The resource vs. the SP
  • Sergiu - L1 organizationresources, L2 or and L3 resourcesorganizations
  • Victor - when you promote an L2 like an MRI–doesn't get the same operational funding as a Track 1 or Track 2. Language in the L1 "integration appropriate to the award"

7. Protocol for shifting effort within an L3 area at XSEDE partner sites (Robert Sinkovits

Previously:

  • (9/13) Added to agenda; From Bob S: Background - The XSEDEsubawardPIs have flexibility when it comes to shifting effort between staff at their sites, so long as they stay within an L3 area. This is definitely a good thing. It’s important though that the L3 managers be kept in the loop since they may have been relying on a particular XSEDE staff member with specialized knowledge or experience. Being relatively new to XSEDE senior management, I wanted to know (1) if we have a protocol for staffing/effort changes and (2) if so, are allsubawardPIs aware of the protocol.
