ECSS Staff Availability Updates
Monthly or quarterly e-mail check in with sub award PIs to update ECSS staffing levels
Notes/ Discussion items:
Is it possible to get the names, fte, and wbs area for ecss staff on a monthly basis from the financial portal (or some other document)?
Ron: How familiar are you with the financial reports available through the user portal available to the L3 areas?
Not much usage, but as long as sub-awardees are submitting invoices in a timely manner, the FTE break downs in the XSEDE Financial reports is accurate on a monthly basis.
Even in a perfect world where sub-awards are reporting quickly, it still will be at least one month late for ECSS to work with that.
This might be useful for checking what we thought was the plan versus what was actually spent, but on a quick view, this (XSEDE Financial Portal) looks inaccurate
Is it possible for ECSS Management to put pressure on the PIs to get information back for planning purposes
Yes it's possible for L3s to do this
