The Washington Public Disclosure Commission's online electronic filing systems were unavailable for all filings except lobbyist and lobbyist employer reporting. The problem began on 12/8/2018 at 4:55 AM. The outage appears to be the result of a failed power circuit or battery backup on the circuit. Systems have been moved to an alternate power source while the issue is investigated. Staff were notified of the outage and began work ~7 AM and systems were available again at 8:05 AM. In the last few months, the agency has been moving systems to more reliable infrastructure. That work is expected to be complete before May 2019 and will greatly reduce the likelihood of similar events.
