Quarterly Report Policy
The Department of Energy (DOE) requires the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) to provide quarterly reports on the progress of all INCITE projects. ALCF, in turn, requires PIs from all INCITE projects to complete a quarterly report, end-of-year (EOY) report, and a final end-of-project (EOP) report.
Due dates for the 2020 INCITE quarterly, EOY, and the EOP reports are:
- April 1, 2020 (CY2020 - Q1)
- July 1, 2020 (CY2020 - Q2)
- October 1, 2020 (CY2020 - Q3)
- January 1, 2021 (CY2020 - EOY) or February 15, 2021 (entire allocation period - EOP)
If a quarterly or EOY report is more than 30 days late:
- The ability to submit jobs for the PI and users of the late project will be disabled.
If a quarterly or EOY report is more than 90 days late:
- The PI and users of the late project will have their accounts disabled.
When the quarterly or EOY report is submitted, the penalties will be removed within three business days.
A PI or user may appeal a project or account suspension to the ALCF Director by a request to support at alcf.anl.gov.
Template Instructions: Please modify the filename to replace PINAME with the last name of the PI of the INCITE project, ALLOCATION to INCITE, and YEAR to the corresponding calendar year. For quarterly reports, please replace the X in the filename with the quarter number. For example, for a project with PI 'Joe Smith' that is submitting the quarterly report for the third quarter in calendar year 2016 for INCITE, the filename will be Smith_INCITE_2016_Q3.docx. For an EOP report, replace YEARS with the years associated with your allocation duration. For example, a three-year INCITE project with PI 'Joe Smith' that started in 2014 would have a filename of Smith_INCITE_2014-2016_EOP.docx
