• Startup review process will be affected.– Reviewers will now be the

bottleneck.– TG-wide reviewer will be default;

sites that want a hands-on review for their resource, let me know.

– We also need Startup limits for each resource; we’re assuming 30k until told otherwise.

• Add-user process also moved into POPS backend.– NCSA staff will continue to

process these requests for now

Action items for RPs here!
