  • In an effort to streamline the system maintenance, AIR will be taking online systems offline once per month. This will allow AIR to systematically roll out updates. Urgent updates and updates that won’t cause disruption to live systems may still occur outside of the maintenance window.

    The scheduled maintenance window for December will be Friday, January 20 at 11:59 pm ET until Sunday, January 22 at 11pm ET. Users can resume accessing all active, online systems on Monday, January 23.

    Please refer to the Important Dates section of the portal for specific information for the future dates.
