Munitions and Explosives Safety Update
As you may have noticed, DAU has released a new sign in for their websites.
Unfortunately, the sign in software has created some problems that DAU did not expect. The main problem for the Munitions CoP is the loss of being able to post new items under topics, such as placing the latest Munitions and Explosives Safety Newsletter under the Ammo CoP Newsletter topic.
Until this problem is fixed all new items posted can be found listed in Announcements https://www.dau.edu/cop/ammo/Lists/Announcements/AllItems.aspx and under Contribution Type: Case Study https://www.dau.edu/cop/ammo/DAU%20Sponsored%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx.
