The use cases in this area describe how access to specific XSEDE resources is managed, including: the project proposal process, the proposal review process, and the process of allocating XSEDE resources to specific projects.
One of XSEDE's central missions is to facilitate the use of the most powerful public computers in the United States. These computers are powerful, but the demand to use them is larger than the capacity they offer. The scientific community must assign access to these resources based on national priorities. The allocation system described in these use cases is an important part of the overall XSEDE system. A central allocation system--one that researchers can use to request access to many resources--is important to ensure the easiest access by researchers.
