The following, from Greg Banks (AOD-Operations), explains status of 1ID: 

The Vacuum group has everything leak tight, and is wrapping the mask for bake out.   Mohan will need to go to ID-1 to verify that the proper mask is in place.   The Vacuum group expects the work (bake- out, final leak-check) to be com pl eted tomorrow night between 08:00-10:00 p.m.  

There will be repr esentatives from ASD Survey, Mec h an ical, and Water to button everything up when the vacuum work is complete.   HP will verify shielding, the Ops will then close Zone A.   Studies are planned to start at midnight Tuesday, and should start on time.  

Operations Directorate:   The issue of spare parts was discussed at today's meeting.   We will ascertain that enough parts on-hand for the future.
