Thank you again for your support while we update the UWA Contact Directory. Prior to Christmas we indicated our expectation was to complete these by 31 January. 

Recently the Contact Directory experienced ongoing system issues which affected the editing team’s ability to complete the required updates. BI&TS has been working hard to resolve these issues and we now estimate the updates will be completed by the end of February.
