MSI's New Renewal Schedule

MSI is transitioning to a one-year renewal cycle for allocations of 200,000 or fewer service units (SUs) per year. Renewals will be required in the fall for the following calendar year. If your group uses only lab resources or requested fewer than 100,000 SUs for the January through June 2011 period, your accounts will remain active throughout 2011.

Because allocations of greater than 100,000 SUs for the January through June period (greater than 200,000 for the full year) use substantially more MSI resources than the smaller requests, the allocation committee determined that these large users will still need to submit the renewal form every six months.
