The processing of XSEDE allocations awards and subsequent reporting of usage by XSEDE Service Providers (SPs) are two of the most critical integration points between service providers and XSEDE. Accurate and efficient processing of this information is the critical link in ensuring the integrity of the allocation process and provides the feedback mechanism whereby XSEDE can track both system and user usage, and plan for future allocations. 

This BOF seeks to share lessons learned, best practices, and new ideas for how current and future SPs address this important function. Topics the BOF will address: 

• Brief overview of the XSEDE data standards and API for processing awards and reporting usage 
• Structure and design of the XSEDE allocations database 
• Use cases from SPs who are currently integrating with XSEDE 
• Use cases from Level 3 SPs or other institutions, who are considering integration with XSEDE 
• Use cases from sites that are not XSEDE SPs but may have models of usage tracking of interest to others 
• Working with difference resource managers 
• Handing different resource types (processors, memory configurations, accelerators) 
• How data is reported to the XDMoD tool 

This BOF invites those who are involved with or interested in the allocations review and award process; systems administrators who are responsible to ingesting allocations award and reporting usage; system architects responsible for the design of development of systems to perform these functions; and managers and others involved in deploying new resources.
