Dear Users,

The NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is currently gathering requests for High-End Computing (HEC) time on NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) Facility and NASA Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS) resources for FY08Q3 awards to begin May 1, 2008 and expire April 30, 2009. A committee of SMD program managers will consider requests submitted via e-Books to the SMD rolling submission call by the March 20, 2008 deadline.

Please submit a request if:

  1. Your current project award has already expired and you wish to continue the project;
  2. Your current project award expires on 4/30/08 and you wish to continue the project;
  3. You will have used your entire allocation before the project award expires; or
  4. You have SMD funding for a new project that you wish to begin 1 May 2008.

The URL for e-Books SMD computing time request submissions is:

If you have a current project, use the same e-Books user name and password you have been using. If not, follow the directions on the above page for obtaining a new username and password from e-Books. In your submission, request the time allocation you will need for the full award year beginning May 1, 2008. Please ensure that the amount of time you are requesting is typed correctly on the e-Books Allocation Request display as it is difficult to make large increases after awards begin.

Note that unused allocations DO NOT carry over past the project award expiration date. You can check your current award expiration date in e-Books at the Award Administration e-Book for your project award under Award Management and then Contract Binder. Also note that greater weight will be given to continuation requests when requested reports have been filed in e-Books for current awards. In particular, pre-annual reports should include any explanation for low usage of current award allocations.

For questions concerning the e-Books system contact ebooks@reisys.com.

For questions on the SMD HEC allocation process or your specific project, please contact support@hec.nasa.gov.
