Abstract: The VLA Sky Survey (VLASS) is an ambitious project to image the entire sky visible to the VLA in three epochs. The Survey is being carried out at a frequency of 2-4GHz in full linear polarization (Stokes I,Q,U) at a resolution of 2.5 arcseconds, making it the highest angular resolution all-sky radio survey ever attempted. VLASS will collect 0.5 PB of raw data, and 0.3 PB of Basic Data Products (calibration tables, images, and catalogs) will be created and archived at NRAO. There are also opportunities for external groups to create higher level Extended Data Products. In this paper, we present a summary of the scheduling, operations, data processing, and archiving of the survey.
