      Is Jan. 6th-11th still a valid timeline for peer review? Fingers crossed.

          Peer review has been postponed until the last week of February, due to the shutdown.

            Just tried logging into the Portal and received an error message. Not sure if I typed in the wrong credentials (highly unlikely); any chance the Portal is closed due to the shutdown? Anyone else having difficulties accessing the Portal?

            Thanks - Happy Friday.

                      Has anyone heard an update on the Peer Review schedule for the 2018 AFG? I read a post earlier indicating that the review would happen at the end of February but that post was before the shutdown ended. Has anyone heard anything definitive?

                            Word is still all awards dropped over 4-6 week period, would guess somewhere in May-June range with Computer Denials coming in April again. Tech review for reductions and other issues happens during Peer to speed things up, so could see 1199As shortly after CDJs if not all at the same time. Everything will come quick since the goal is still to get AFG back in March, so 2019 will probably be end of the summer.

                              Is Peer Review still scheduled to commence on the 24th?

                              Probably actually starts the 25th with the 24th as a travel day for the panelists if that's still the date.
