An email was sent to us on Monday, March 11, 2019 from Abt Associates that provided high-level summary information about data that the data reviewers have flagged for further review. During the HMIS Vendors call on March 14, 2019, Abt Associates shared with us that each CoC will be sent a similar report outlining flagged data that the data reviewers would like each CoC to review and explain. Abt Associates indicated that there was not an expectation that HMIS vendors would resolve these issues prior to April 1, 2019. We understand that this guidance appears to be in conflict with the guidance contained in the letters many CoCs have received from Abt Associates.
We have reached out to both HUD and Abt Associates to seek clarification that can be shared with all CoCs and all HMIS Vendors on what is expected prior to April 1, 2019. Once we have received any further guidance, we will provide another update. In the meantime, we are reviewing the file we received from Abt Associates as well as the LSA-related Cases that many of you have submitted. We will provide further updates as more information is shared with us. Please continue to submit your questions or files to us via the Customer Care Portal so that we have an accurate understanding of the breadth and scope of the flagged data to share with Abt Associates and HUD.
Please create a case in the Customer Community if you have further questions.
