  • Certificates of Appreciation were incorrectly sent to finance.  They will now bypass financial analyst and FMO approval steps. 

  • Per a requirement from OPS, the award type field was shortened to 40 characters.  OPS has a limitation on the award type field and this was applied to OAS due to the OPS data feed. 

  • When a nomination was returned to the nominator for rewrite (in Pending Rewrite status) or saved as a draft (in Draft status), the nominator was unable to remove a nominee.  Nominators can now remove and add nominees when nominations are pending with them.

  • Resolved a bug that prevented votes from being recalculated when a JCAC member was removed from the cycle.  This prevented the JCAC chair from being able to sign off when all other votes were received. 

  • Resolved a bug affecting group awards.  Deleted or disapproved nominees were incorrectly displayed on nomination forms. 

  • Added additional application logging to meet the new ADG logging requirements. 
For additional help, please contact ISC at Post or ADG Support by selecting the ‘Submit a request’ button at the top of the page or by emailing adg-support@state.gov.
Visit the Global Application Portal (GAP) for the latest news and information on all the ADG's applications.
