Quick update on DoW revision, Year 2 reporting etc.

The Project Officer had some relatively minor comments and suggestions on the latest revised text of the DoW, and so it is hoped that a final verison can be produced quickly, and once approved the data can be entered into NEF. Simon has contacted a few individual partners from whom more information is needed.

While the contract amendment is being processed, the second year reporting cannot begin. Partners should therefore prepare their cost figures internally ready to enter into the online system once it becomes available. It is also necessary to make sure the effort reporting is complete for the second year.

ACTION: All to bring effort report in management website up to date for whole of 2012, by 31st January.

Forthcoming deliverables

Simon explained that because the review meeting is slightly later tha noriginally expected, the deadline for deliverables to be ready for internal review is Friday 15th February, allowing two weeks for review before sending to the EC and reviewers.

Internal reviewers are still needed for several deliverables (see ApanDeliverables). Volunteers should sign up on that page or email Simon.

ACTION: All to consider volunteering to be internal reviewer for one of the forthcoming deliverables, by 31st January.

Any other issues

There were some questions about use of the management website for recording effort. Simon explained that it is possible to have one person per organisation authorised to enter the figures for others, but only for the current month. It is better to have individuals enter their own figures, or to aggregate them together under one person's name with a note explaining that is what has been done.
