News Flash--No pre-proposals required for design of the extension of PIM in 2015-2016

...as the submitted cluster plans are fully adequate for our purposes

In our original and agreed process, we had envisaged a need for pre-proposals to provide additional detail on the new work, and we had asked for these pre-proposals by February 14.  We find the level of detail in the cluster plans adequate for our present needs.  Since we know that February is a very busy month, and since the program document that we submit to the Consortium Office in April will be very short (only 15 pages), we are rescinding our earlier request for pre-proposals. 

At a future date and after prioritization of the proposed new work is completed, we will need more detailed proposals.  We feel that it would be premature to ask for them at this point, and we want to avoid any excess demands on our contributors.  

Thank you very much for sending in the cluster plans, they outline some very exciting work.

Dear PIM Colleagues! 

Welcome to the PIM 2015-2016 collaboration platform! We will use this space for sharing information to develop plans for the program for 2015-2016. The Program Management Unit will then use the compiled materials to draft the PIM extension proposal, which is due to the Consortium Office by April 25, 2014. 

Please refer to the “PIM Roadmap for 2015-2016 extension_V1” document for guidelines on the process and timeline, and consult with the PIM cluster leaders regarding topics within their clusters. 

We look forward to receiving your inputs and to developing an interesting program of work for the next two years!
