Maintenance
Databases are updated on a schedule determined by the database owners. Most are updated quarterly or semi-annually. To update a database, an email needs to be sent to the DPG staff member who is the contact person for that project. The database can either be attached to the email or the email can contain directions to the location of the updated database. The DPG staff member will then make a copy of the current production database as a backup and upload the new database to the production server.

Future Plans
Database owners will be able to update their databases on the production server. This is contingent on getting the new DPG server up and running. APIS will be the first project to use this technique and will be an alpha test.
