Accepting Courier Deliveries

Processing Material With Deadlines or an Emergency Filing During Office Closure

The Docket Operations staff will still receive electronic submissions during the office move May 25, 2007, through May 29, 2007, but not during the period the computers are down from June 13, 2007, through June 17, 2007. These submissions, however, will not be immediately entered onto the Internet Web site. Hard copy submissions delivered to Docket Operations by May 30, 2007, will be treated as received in a timely manner, if they were due during the office's closure.

Generally, time periods/due dates for responsive filings for submissions due during the May office closure will be extended from May 30, 2007, and June 18, 2007, when DMS operations resume. These periods of closure and computer inaccessibility will be considered “holidays” for purposes of procedural rules.

Persons filing emergency applications or other such documents should contact TSA with specific questions about deadlines and extensions.
