Quarterly Allocation Reductions

Projects that are not using their allocation at a certain pace may have time returned to the allocation pool of their respective DOE Office of Science Program Office.  (ALCC, Director's Reserve,  Exploratory, and Educational projects are exempt from this reduction.)

Allocation Year 2020

No allocation reductions are planned for 2020. Projects are reminded that they may still run, at zero queue priority, when they have exhausted their allocation for the year. Some Program Offices may have a reserve available for mid-year augmentations. Project Principal Investigators or Managers should contact their respective NERSC Allocation Manager for more information.
