The enhancement of the EGI accounting framework is necessary for the future sustainability of the EGI ecosystem and for the successful integration of heterogenous platforms and new resource types (data, virtualized resources, storage, desktop Grids, etc.).


  • steer the process of requirements gathering from Resource Centres and NGIs in new areas of development, with a particular focus on storage and virtualization. These requirements will be provided to the EGI technology providers and to the JRA1 product teams
  • analyse the PY2/PY3 development plans of EMI and IGE project, to make sure that what is proposed matches the requirements of the EGI Community
  • foster the convergence towards a common accounting solution for UNICORE Resource Centres
  • collect information about NGI business models that require the support of accounting
  • coordinate deployment plans of NGIs which publish summarized URs
  • discuss EGI accounting development and deployment plans with peer grids to ensure future interoperability
