The Federal Communications Commission has scheduled an update to the agency’s legacy information technology systems for over the Labor Day weekend.

FCC CIO David Bray wrote in a blog post posted Thursday the IT team will shut down several online public platforms from Sept. 2-7 to make way for the updates.

Applications included in the modernization work will include Electronic Document Management System, Electronic Comment Filing System and the Universal Licensing System.

Bray said downtime will not affect the agency’s web pages that fall under the www.fcc.gov domain and the FCC Consumer Help Desk, which now operates as a Software as a Service platform.

“It is our goal to modernize more of the FCC’s legacy IT to SaaS and other cloud-based platform options going forward,” he said.

“This work effort over the Labor Day weekend is the latest in a series of on-going work to improve the FCC’s legacy IT systems, reduce how much we spend on our legacy infrastructure, and improve public engagement with the commission.”
