Some general comments. . . l M&O Mo. Us are necessary (foreseen in the Construction Mo. Us) l M&O Mo. Us needed now - M&O expenses starting l RRBs play a key role in overseeing and approving M&O arrangements l Draft text did not start with an empty sheet of paper. It is based on: a) Construction Mo. Us (e. g. for Collaboration structures and relations with FAs) - addresses the uniquely large size of the Collaborations b) LEP M&O agreements - benefit from experience with M&O matters. General remarks on present text (Draft 3. 4) l Two aspects systematically clarified with respect to Draft 2: Relationship with Construction Mo. Us Precedence of “General Conditions for Experiments at CERN” l “BINGO” is just place-holder! To be replaced in final Mo. Us by the name of the experiment concerned: ALICE, ATLAS, CMS or LHCb as appropriate. 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 2

Preamble l Sets the background and explains why M&O Mo. Us are needed l Note that the form of the Mo. Us, explained in (c), is as for the Construction Mo. Us: bilateral Funding Agency Û CERN as Host for each FA involved l (c) now makes clear the precedence of the Construction Mo. Us - first of a number of places where the Legal Service has been helpful l (d) explains the role of the RRBs with respect to M&O 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 3

Article 1 : Annexes l Moved from the end as suggested (was Article 14

Article 1 : Annexes l Moved from the end as suggested (was Article 14 in Draft 2). l It thus establishes from the start the context of the Annexes l Relationship of some Annexes with those in the Construction Mo. U is more clearly stated. 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 4

Article 2 : Parties (old Art 1) l Names clearly the parties to the Mo. U (as in the Construction Mo. U) l Refers to the Institutes in the Collaboration (Annex I) l and to the Funding Agencies concerned (Annex 2) 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 5

Article 3 : Purpose (old Art 2) l Defines the subject matter of the Mo. U - M&O l 3. 1 makes it clear that computing is not addressed l In response to comment, “pre-exploitation” and “exploitation” are more clearly separated and these terms are defined (3. 2) l The wording of 3. 3 has been made simpler and more direct to emphasise that M&O of detector elements starts after commissioning l 3. 5 sets precedence of relevant Co-operation Agreements and Protocols (narrower than before) 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 6

Article 4 : Duration (old Art 3) l In response to comment, the provisions

Article 4 : Duration (old Art 3) l In response to comment, the provisions have been made more conventional for this kind of Mo. U: Initial period of validity (now to 2011, i. e. the first 5 years of running) followed by automatic 5 -year extensions (unless RRB decides not) until, at latest, the LHC programme is closed l Also deals withdrawal of FAs (4. 4) l and Institutes (4. 5) l 4. 6 deals with the case of new Institutes joining (in Draft 2 was somewhat illogically in the Article on M&O Procedure). It is now also stronger and provides for additional M&O contributions from such Institutes 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 7

Article 5 : “BINGO” (old Art 4) l 5. 1 defines the Detector (Annex

Article 5 : “BINGO” (old Art 4) l 5. 1 defines the Detector (Annex 4) l 5. 2 defines the Collaboration management structure (Annex 5) l 5. 3 defines the participating Institutes (Annex 6) l Compared with Draft 2, the reference at this point to the Collaboration membership list has been removed, since it belongs more naturally to the discussion on cost sharing in Article 9 (where it is made clear that the list is to be of Ph. D-equivalent scientific staff) 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 8

Article 6 : Responsibilities (old Art 5) l Cleaned up to use standard terminology,

Article 6 : Responsibilities (old Art 5) l Cleaned up to use standard terminology, e. g. “sub-detector” l 6. 1 now spells out more clearly the basis. In response to comment, the link with “having supplied equipment” has been dropped. l Both 6. 1 and 6. 2 have been raised to the status of “fundamental principles” on the advice of the Legal Service. l 6. 3, 6. 4 and 6. 5 deal with the distinction between Common Items and sub-detectors/systems looked after by individual Institutes or groups of Institutes. 6. 3. 1 -6. 3. 2 and 6. 4 -6. 5 have been re-ordered to treat Common Items first, as is done in Article 7. l 6. 3 has also been re-worded to make it more clear that it refers to M&O roles (not necessarily the same as Construction). l 6. 4 and 6. 5 make it clear now that the values in Annexes 7 and 8 are those established by CORE l 6. 6 reaffirms the precedence of the General Conditions and also notes explicitly that CERN has two roles: Host and Collaborating Institute l (The old 5. 7 has been dropped since adequately covered by Gen. Con. ) 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 9

Article 7 : M&O Categories (old Art 6) l Defines the three Categories of M&O expenses - A, B and C l Points to the explicit lists of headings in Annexes 9, 10 and 11 l In 7. 1. 3 now notes for Category C the precedence of the General Conditions 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 10

Article 8 : Approval etc. (old Art 7) l The word “Approval” now appears

Article 8 : Approval etc. (old Art 7) l The word “Approval” now appears in the title to make it clear that the RRB performs more than a monitoring function. l 8. 1 now says explicitly what the RRB must approve: all the details of Category A overall level of Category B and the sharing of B proposed by the Collaboration l 8. 2 now says explicitly that the RRB appoints its Scrutiny Group and is more specific about the role of this group l The detailed procedure under which the Scrutiny Group will work is specified in Annex 12 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 11

Article 9 : Cost Sharing (old Art 8) l The consensus of all the

Article 9 : Cost Sharing (old Art 8) l The consensus of all the opinion heard on sharing seems to be: Category A by scientific staff with Ph. D or equivalent Category B as proposed by the Collaboration for both the pre-exploitation and exploitation phases l 9. 2 now says clearly how the list that will be the basis for the Category A sharing (Annex 13) is to be maintained. I will return to this when speaking of Article 10 on Procedure l The statement about Category A contributions normally being in cash has been elevated to a sub-article (9. 3) Category A contributions in-kind must be agreed by the RRB Provision for a minimum fixed cash contribution per Institute has been introduced. l Rebates on Cat A contributions are introduced in 9. 4, referring to Annex 14 (list of eligible NMS countries) and Annex 15 (the rebate formula). Roger Cashmore will speak in more details about these aspects. 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 12

Article 9 ctd. l 9. 4 now uniformly refers to “rebate”, i. e. clarifies that the amounts of the invoices will be reduced (rather than sending invoices for the full amounts and then handing some money back later). l The formula for the rebates has to be approved by the DG l In their approval of the CERN Medium Term Plans, Council will be approving the overall amounts. l Provision is made for reviewing the arrangements for rebates every three years. l 9. 5 reaffirms that the Category B sharing is to to be proposed by the Collaboration and 9. 6 recalls that CERN will pay C costs from its operating budget. 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 13

Article 10 : Procedure (Old Art 9) l Clarified in the light of comments. For any year “n”: 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 14

Article 10 ctd. l Note (10. 5) that invoices will be in Swiss francs.

Article 10 ctd. l Note (10. 5) that invoices will be in Swiss francs. The payment procedure is in Annex 16. l 10. 6 specifies who can make payments and the framework for authorisation levels l 10. 8 specifies what will happen if the RRB cannot reach agreement on the M&O arrangements for a given year and is an important safety measure 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 15

Article 11 : Rights etc. (old Art 10) l This simply says in the

Article 11 : Rights etc. (old Art 10) l This simply says in the standard way that the people who joined the Collaboration to build the detector can do physics with it. 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 16

Article 12 : Admin. etc. (old Art 11) l Standard statements on financial rules

Article 12 : Admin. etc. (old Art 11) l Standard statements on financial rules and the authority of the CERN Director General l The paragraph on default (12. 3) now clearly separates actions towards the defaulters from the more general question of recovery from the loss (which is for the RRB to consider) 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 17

Article 13 : Amendments (old Art 12) l Standard phrasing. The consensus at the

Article 13 : Amendments (old Art 12) l Standard phrasing. The consensus at the September meetings seemed to be that annual updates of the Annexes are adequate 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 18

Article 14 : Disputes (old Art 13) l Wording on handling of disputes has

Article 14 : Disputes (old Art 13) l Wording on handling of disputes has been clarified with the help of the Legal Service. l 14. 2 has been introduced, also at their suggestion, to cleanly de-couple obligations under this Mo. U from those under the Construction Mo. U. 19/10/2001 DJ for RRBs 22 -23/10/2001 19
