Depending on how an NGI is organised there might be a number of members inthe ROD team who work on duty roster (shifts on a daily or weekly basis), or there may be one person working as ROD on a daily basis and a few deputies who take over the responsibilities when necessary. This latter model is generally more suitable for small NGIs.

The Regional Operations team is responsible for detecting problems, coordinating the diagnosis, and monitoring the problems through to a resolution. It monitors sites in their region, and react to problems identified by the monitors, either<br>directly or indirectly, provide support to sites as needed, add to the knowledge base, and provide informational flow to oversight bodies in cases of non-reactive or non-responsive sites. ROD is a team responsible for solving problems on the infrastructure according to agreed procedures. They ensure that problems are properly recorded and progress according to specified time lines. They ensure that necessary information is available to all parties. The team is provided by each ROC and requires procedural knowledge on the process (rather than technical skills) for their work.

*'''Putting a site in downtime or suspend for urgent matters''' - In general, ROD can place a site in downtime (in the GOCDB) if it is either requested by the site, or ROD sees an urgent need to put the site into downtime. ROD may also suspend a site, under exceptional circumstances, without going through all the steps of the escalation procedure. For example, if a security hazard occurs, ROD must suspend a site on the spot in the case of such an emergency. It is important to know that COD can also suspend a site in the case of an emergency e.g. security incidents or lack of response.
 
*'''Notify COD about core or urgent matters''' - ROD should create tickets to COD in the case of core or urgent matters.

ROD

ROD (Regional Operator on Duty) is a role which oversees the smooth operation of EGI infrastructure in the respective NGI. ROD team is responsible for solving problems on the infrastructure within own Operations Centre according to agreed procedures. They ensure that problems are properly recorded and progress according to specified time lines. They ensure that necessary information is available to all parties. The team is provided by each Operations Centre and requires procedural knowledge on the process. The role is usually covered by a team or people and is provided by each NGI. Depending on how an NGI is organised there might be a number of members inthe ROD team who work on duty roster (shifts on a daily or weekly basis), or there may be one person working as ROD on a daily basis and a few deputies who take over the responsibilities when necessary. This latter model is generally more suitable for small NGIs.
In this text, the acronym ROD will be used both for the whole team, or for the person who is actually working on shift.
In order to become a ROD member, one first needs to go through the steps described in Joining operations.
