TSA's Migration to the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS)
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announces the migration of data and a service disruption to our automated public dockets, now managed by the Department of Transportation's (DOT's) Docket Management System (DMS). Effective September 30, 2007, DOT's DMS electronic dockets will be replaced by the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS), a government-wide, electronic docket management system. In preparation for the data migration from DMS to FDMS, effective Thursday, September 27, 2007 at 5 p.m., DOT's DMS will no longer accept electronic comments/submissions. DOT will continue to accept, as well as process, faxed and other paper documents after the migration to FDMS. On Monday, October 1, 2007, FDMS will begin accepting electronic submissions for all currently open DMS dockets, including open TSA dockets. Between October 1 and October 31, closed DMS dockets will still be accessible through the DMS Web site. By October 31, the full migration of all electronic dockets currently in DMS is expected to be completed.
