PBS Flash Bulletin
Review any Default Bids submitted between Feb 28 and March 2. Navblue, our software vendor, erroneously installed an update to PBS recently. To rectify the issue and ensure a seamless April block award, we have asked them to revert back to the previous version. As a result, if you have amended your Default Bid between Monday, February 28 and Friday, March 2 in either the Old or New User Interface, please take the time to ensure your bid is reflected correctly within PBS.
