Maintenance Events & System Downtime

What happened to Resume Builder/Answer?

The Army completed its transition to the DoD Enterprise Recruitment Tool (USA Staffing) effective, 1 May 2012.  USA Staffing is the single hiring process and tool used by all DoD components.   Effective, 12 July 2012 applicants no longer have access to Resume Builder.   Applicants will be able to view the status of self-nominations from the old system via USAJOBS - My Account - Application Status.

for regularly scheduled maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

System/Network Maintenance: Monthly Maintenance Weekend (MMW) Downtime

There is a system/network maintenance event scheduled for one weekend every month.
Server and application downtime specifics will be posted no later than COB 72 hours before the event:

Next MMW Event:   Fri Oct 20 - Sun Oct 22

The CPOL Portal will be Unavailable during this period.

Production systems will go down starting Friday at 9:00 pm and will become available again on Sunday at 5:00 pm. All applications will be unavailable during this period, including, but not limited to:

Business Objects,

AG1CP (Belvoir) local network resources such as share drives and network printers will be unavailable from 0800 Saturday until 0800 Sunday for patches and drive expansion.

Please note that we are now operating on a standardized monthly maintenance schedule. As such, ALL applications will be unavailable from Friday 9:00 PM (Eastern) until Sunday 5:00 PM (Eastern) on all subsequent maintenance weekends. We believe that this standardization will facilitate long-term planning by both our IT staffs as well as our customers in the field, and result in substantially fewer last-minute schedule modifications.
