Timeline of TAC process

  • The TAC Chair announces the call-for-proposals roughly 1 month prior to proposal deadlines.
  • Each TAC member reads, ranks, and recommends time allocation for all submitted proposals.  
  • The full committee meets ~4 weeks after the proposal deadline to decide final allocations.
  • The TAC Scheduler sends the approved time allocations to the appropriate staff at MMT, Magellan, and FLWO, and helps coordinate the scheduling of CfA time requests.
  • Telescope schedules are completed about 1 month before each semester begins. 
  • MMT, Magellan, and FLWO staff send notes to PIs about scheduled nights.  The TAC Chair sends notes to PIs who did not receive telescope time;
