AQS 2014 Maintenance Patch Deployment Schedule

The AQS Federal Team plans to do routine updates to the AQS software on a monthly basis in 2014. This both allows us to do more extensive testing of changes before they are deployed, and to allow system outages to be more predictable for users. Note: We will do emergency fixes for urgent issues as needed, and provide separate notice if and when these occur. With each patch, we will also publish a change notice on the AQS memos page at: and via the AQS RSS feed.

Also note, the AQS Exchange Network test environment will be refreshed from the AQS production environment immediately after each patch deployment. (Exchange Network testers are advised to note the patch deployment dates, as any active test data will need to be reloaded after the refresh.) “Refresh” here means making the test database an exact copy of the production database.
