CARM Experience Simulation Update
We would like to thank the Trade community for their expression of interest in participating in the CARM Experience Simulation (CES). The CES was initially planned to start once current CARM testing activities, including Deep Cycle Testing and User Acceptance Testing, were complete. We have learned a great deal from the current testing efforts, and have received invaluable feedback that will inform our CES approach. A recent decision has been made to extend Deep Cycle Testing. Consequently, we will need to adjust our timelines for the CES. We remain committed to hosting the CES and we will continue with planning activities to ensure that our Trade Chain Partners have the information they need to be ready to participate.
We currently have over 100 volunteers for the CES. We continue to work to build a representative cross-section of the trade community to participate in the CES, and will use this extra time to extend the deadline for expressing interest in participating to June 30, 2022. We anticipate that volunteers will be confirmed for participation in the CES over the summer months.
More information will follow in the coming weeks as we re-plan and adjust our approach for the CES. We will consider peak business periods and will share an overview of the revised CES timelines once they are available to enable planning for your resources and requirements.
