Engaged with IGE and Unicore through the interoperation task to discuss integrating accounting they collect with the central repository.
Support of sites having problems publishing
Optimisation of infrastructure

Portal: No new releases of the accounting portal during this quarter. The service ran smoothly. The main operational problem was bad data from a site causing the UserDN data to be unavailable.

More VOs can be selected from the CUSTOM view.

3. Issues and Mitigation

Issue Description Mitigation Description
Redevelopment of infrastructure taking longer than planned                         Employing contractor to backfill other duties
Large flow of jobs from sites catching up and republishing, sometime in error,overloaded the service, which resulted in lots of sites failing to publish for a few days.. 
Regular optimisation of the consumer database has greatly increased the capacity of the consumer.
