A scheduled system outage will occur beginning Thursday, June 15, 4:30 pm through Monday, June 19, 9:00 am as the PUC transitions from the old DMS to new CDMS system. No filings or payments will be accepted during this time.

The CDMS Project is the PUC’s initiative to overhaul its information technology (IT) systems. This project aligns with the 2018 State Auditor’s recommendation to improve the PUC’s IT infrastructure and customer accessibility. The PUC has been working on this project since late 2019 and will launch June 19, 2023.

The cut-over process to transition to the new CDMS system begins Thursday, June 15, 2023 at 4:30 pm, requiring a system outage until CDMS goes live on June 19, 2023 at 9:00 am. No filings or payments will be accepted or processed during this time.

Due to scheduled outage, the PUC will consider any filings that are due on Friday, June 16, 2023 to be timely if they are filed with the PUC by close of business on Monday, June 19, 2023.

  • Can I still use the old DMS after June 14, 2023?

    No, the DMS system will be archived as of June 15, 2023 at 4:30 pm. However, it will remain online in view-only mode until data migration to the new CDMS is complete. Data migration is estimated to be completed in July, 2023.

    Between June 19th and July 2023, users may need to access both the new CDMS eServices system to access filings after June 15, 2023 and also the old archived DMS system to view filings on or before June 15, 2023.

    We will post a notice on the CDMS Project webpage when all files have been migrated. Sign up for CDMS Project Updates to get notified by email when file migration is complete and other project announcements.
