January Timelines Revised - LUS
 
Following the December PBS award issues, APFA and the Company have jointly decided to adjust the contractual PBS award timeline for the January award only. The added time will help to ensure the accuracy of the bid results and will accommodate:  

  • An evaluation of the December award which will be re-run using the updated programming logic. The JIRC and PBS Administrator will review and verify the results. 
  • A thorough review and validation of the January award by the JIRC and other APFA representatives.

 

The following January bidding timelines have been adjusted for the January bid only:

  1. January PBS Bid Award and Posted in CATCREW Dates
  2. January ETB for Trip Trading Opening Date
  3. VEX Requests for January Bid Month Closing Date
