   Remove TG-Roaming from Resource Request form.
   Possible Modes of Multi-system Access
    (Lone*/Abe/QB/Steele):

     Select distribution on Individual Systems
      If necessary, distribution can be readjusted through transfers.
     Single Pool
      Allow user to request allocation of all 4 systems as a single
      allocation.
     Co-Allocation + Individual
      Allow users to select from pool, but allocation usage on any single
      system is limited to a set “distribution” percentage. If necessary,
      percent distribution can be readjusted through redistribution.
       Or, Select distribution on Individual Systems.
   Now Using Google docs to Track Monitoring.
     Startups
     Supplement/Justification/Advances
   Responsibility for Processing can be shared.
   Site Reps can easily see/determine status.
   Can be used as “case study”/prototype for an enhanced
    POPS Interface.
   Questions?
