Work Package Forecast WP-A0
Quarter (Y1Q4 ): Jun'02 to Aug'02 Project Management & Infrastructure
WPM: Tony Linde University of Leicester


There are three key activities / deliverables for this quarter for the project:

  • architecture
  • phase B plans
  • consortium meeting
  • phase review

The architecture is critical if we are to know what we want to develop as a prototype Virtual Observatory. ...

The architecture will give us a chance to create realistic plans for the work to be done in Phase B and the resources needed to carry out that work. All of which allows us to create a budget for submission to PPARC. This has to be done early in Q4 and all negotiations completed by early August to allow for recruitment for posts beginning in September. We must not allow this to drag on as it has for Phase A.
