      • Change of Pledges during the year 5m

        The WLCG office is receiving some requests for changing pledges in the middle of the WLCG year. One recent request was to reduce the pledge, another recent request was to increase the pledge. We normally push back on those requests: the pledges are commitments, collected in September and submitted as official material to the October RRB, so changing them afterwards would create an inconsistency and complicate the planning of the experiments. Sites can obviously (and are welcome to) offer more than they commit to (beyond pledge) and this gets accounted for. Sites can find themselves in the difficult (and hopefully very rare) situation of not being able to fulfil their commitment and in this case the WLCG office likes to continue being informed (and the experiments as well)
