System outages are necessary to perform required system upgrades and maintenance. During this scheduled time, you will be unable to access My ARC or any of its tools, such as IAR and Memo Manager.

We apologize for this inconvenience and any impact on your work with ARC tools and products. This advance notice is designed to provide you with adequate time to make any necessary schedule adjustments. Early Sunday mornings are selected for maintenance to help minimize the impact on you due to this time having the lowest level of user activity.  

Your understanding and patience are appreciated as we improve and upgrade ARC systems. Please share this information with others in your organization that may be impacted by this scheduled outage.

Tip of the Week: Requesting Access to Tools in My ARC

My ARC users can access additional tools by selecting Toolsin the My ARC dashboard. Users can then request access to tools currently available to their organization by selecting the Request Access link.

An organization’s My ARC Tool Administrator must approve any requested tools. The Primary or Tool Administrator will receive a “Pending Request” email notification once a tool request has been submitted; they can either approve or deny the request. Administrators can also add a note to the requestor along with the response. Adding a message is optional and allows the Tool Administrator to ask for additional information or explain the approval or denial decision.
