All customer's requests for service are important to them. What constitutes a 'high priority' request is difficult to define precisely, but the definition certainly includes 'emergency'. An example would be a unique collection of germplasm threatened with imminent destruction by bulldozers. This would qualify as an emergency and justify a high priority request. If the CGC or curator must submit such an additional, high-priority request after the PGQP annual capacity has been met, the CGC or curator should also indicate the relative importance of items on the new and previously submitted lists. That is, the CGC or curator should prioritize their entire list of requests for the year, rather than prioritize the new list only.
