NA3.3N U-N-3 U-N-13 Requirements Gathering 2 User communities need to be addressed on more generic grounds. We are not moving much from the EGEE model, and the results are therefore similar.
NA3.3N U-N-14 U-N-15 Application Database write here 3 The database looks fine, but, the applications should be organized, inside each area, as "general use applications" (eg. fits libraries in Astrophysics) and "specific applications" from users. The general use applications should be installed by default in the whole infrastructure, in the software installation repositories, the same as the HEP experiments do.
NA3.3N U-N-16 U-N-17 Training Training is taking place at different sites, more or less in an uncorrelated way 3 It is probably impossible to coordinate an "inter-NGI" organization.
NA3.3N U-N-12 U-N-18 U-N-19 Consultancy There are difficulties with manpower due to lack of resources 2 Hiring dedicated people, which passes by obtaining the funding.

New members should be included and contacted via Ibergrid meetings or using current mailing lists.
SA1.4N O-N-3 Monitoring Regional Nagios instance is installed and maintained at CESGA site. Nagios tests are used by Portuguese Dashboard to raise tickets to Ibergrid sites. 4 Ibergrid regional Nagios it's not fully failover compliant, new services should be installed to improve regional nagios availability.
SA1.5N O-N-2 Accounting Accounting portal is installed and maintained at CESGA. CESGA staff are in charge to solve accounting issues for local and EGI project sites. 4 A new Accounting Portal roadmap should be released the next months to include new functionalities and users requests.
