If prior to Jan. 12 UGA employees placed any meetings on their University Calendar Service for the dates March 11–31 and Oct. 28–Nov. 4, 2007, the meetings are now off by one hour and must be manually re-entered with the correct time. Any meetings within these dates that have been placed on your calendar since Jan. 12 are not affected.
This change comes after the university updated its calendar system to account for the new beginning and end of Daylight Savings Time. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 moved the time-change date in the spring and fall. Beginning this year, DST begins the second Sunday in March and ends the first Sunday in November. Previously, it began the first Sunday in April and ended the last Sunday in October.
Operating systems and applications programmed under the old DST rules are being modified. EITS patched the UGA Calendar Service on Jan. 12.
