Man-months delivered

We are in Year 4 (November 1st 1999-October 31st 2000).

Here are two tables showing the man-months delivered in two categories: those paid for by the PAVR project and the site man-months delivered through other sources of funding. The contract requires us to hit both targets.

The first table shows the PAVR man-months, predicted until the end of Year 4 (October 31st 2000) assuming you continue to employ your current staff. Please check these figures and let us know of any errors.

It is vital to get this correct by the end of the project, so we have also shown the number of man-months your site has to deliver in Year 5 (November 1st 2000 - October 31st 2001) in order to meet your individual obligations. A negative number means you will have contributed more than your allocated share (which is good, given the shortfalls elsewhere). Positive numbers mean that you will not meet your obligations unless you recruit very urgently. Please be aware that this means we may require you to return money which you already have. Recruit to avoid this.

As we have already agreed, any partner who can recruit should now do so (simply clear this in advance with Phil Willis, for safety). Please let the PAVR partners know of any suitable candidates who cannot be appointed to your site.

EU-funded man-months

(For the Swiss sites, the Committed column shows their commitment to be funded by Swiss matching funds, without the annual breakdown.)

The Contract requires us (all sites together, including the Swiss) to deliver 581 site-funded man-months.

Because Siemens (59) have been replaced by Imagination (24), we are 35 man-months short in the total. These man-months still form aprt of the overall contract, so are available to any site who can recruit. If we fall short, final payments to partners will be reduced, so it is in everyone's interest to make the 581 total.

Site-funded man-months

The Contract requires us (all sites together, including the Swiss) to deliver 600 site-funded man-months.

For Imagination we have shown a nominal 24 months from non-EU funds. The obligation of Siemens was for 60 site-funded man-months, so this means we will be 36 site man-months short. Therefore, ALL SITES, please declare any further site-funded man-months that you can, these will help the project hit its target. You can do this even if you are below target on the EU man-months, there is no requirement for these to balance in any way.

It is harder to predict site-funded months in Year 4, so we have left that column blank and put the shortfall (to be met in years 4 and 5) in the Year 5 column. Each site appears to be under-performing here so ALL SITES need to declare further man-months here. Please let us know of any changes.
