The use cases in this area describe ways a community manages access to its resources, including: project solicitations, proposal submissions, proposal reviews, and allocating resources to specific projects.
Research computers are powerful, but the demand to use them is larger than the capacity they offer. Access to these resources must be based on community priorities. The allocation system described in these use cases is used by the XSEDE system but is available to others as well. A central allocation system--one that researchers can use to request access to many resources--is important to ensure the easiest access by researchers.
