The annual Scientific Computing Portfolio Management Team (SCPMT) review is scheduled for Feb. 23 and 24. This review helps develop the M&S purchases and SCD service directives for the following fiscal year(s), e.g., SCPMT17 helps to develop the FY18 and FY19 plans. In preparation, all experiments that use computing resources fill out a resource request spreadsheet. Experiments also register for the services they intend to use. The figure included shows the number of SCD services each experiment is using.
This registration process has gone through a major improvement this year and is being tracked in the ServiceNow software infrastructure (also known as SNOW).
