The CoARC would like to provide you with an update on the situation regarding this year's Annual Report of Current Status (RCS). Our software vendor has been working diligently with beta testers to ensure that the new reporting system will be of the highest quality. The beta testing has resulted in several software enhancements, which, unfortunately, will require additional time. Accordingly, as it is less than 5 weeks away, the previously proposed September 1st deadline is no longer feasible.
Given the uncertainty related to the duration of the revision process, the CoARC will not set a new submission deadline until the revised RCS is ready to go. Rest assured that the new due date will allow ample time for you to contact the Executive Office with any questions you might have, and for completion of the RCS in its new format. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns related to the RCS process, please contact Jana Anderson or Tom Smalling at the Executive Office.
