I tried to call her out on it, but I don't think it sunk in.

The main branch has provided a checklist of what documents we need for these loans (updated 5 times on Friday ), but neither of these new documents is on the checklist. And they haven't sent us a new checklist today.

We keep getting "Interim Final Rule" documents and FAQs from the SBA on the PPP. Sometimes daily. It's frustrating, but also somewhat amusing. Each "Interim Final Rule" has included this:

Quote:
DATES: Effective Date: This rule is effective [INSERT DATE OF PUBLICATION IN THE FEDERAL REGISTER].
and
Quote:
Comment Date: Comments must be received on or before [INSERT DATE 30 DAYS AFTER DATE OF PUBLICATION IN THE FEDERAL REGISTER].
I have to write the date received on each one so I can keep track of which is the most recent.

The new rounds of PPP funds went into place this morning. I managed to get one application in before the site slogged down. Now I get "Can't reach this page" over and over. Sometimes the login page actually loads, but then it times out again before I can get into the application I'm trying to submit.

We had several applications pending in the hopes that the new legislation would go through for a second round of PPP loans. Apparently, so did many other banks.

It's been 2-1/2 hours of:
refresh
refresh
refresh
enter login info
Can't reach this page
refresh
refresh
enter login info
search for application
click application
Can't reach this page
refresh
refresh
enter login info
Can't reach this page
etc.

ETA: Having to log in again every time a page doesn't load is the worst part. It's still the same this afternoon. I need a drink.

I saw an article on the loans and the problems small banks were facing. One CEO had his staff work overnight on the data entry when the system loads were lighter.

I've seen recommendations to enter data at night, too. Luckily, I was able to get done what I needed to. I wasn't going to stay late to do it. I doubt I would have been approved for overtime.
