Hello System Administrators,
As a reminder, the 2020 HUD HMIS Data Standards go into effect next week and will be released onto the live instances on Tuesday, October 1, along with the updated CSV export which has been aligned with the HUD HMIS Data Standards.
In anticipation of the October 1 release date, please ensure any items needing completion before October 1 are completed by that time. Please reference these resources as guidance:
On October 1, please update any existing Program Templates with the applicable new  System screens (or customized versions), in order to make them available to your end users.
|Please note: If Bitfocus provides your system administration services, your team is already planning for these changes and will be working closely with you to ensure a smooth roll out.|
Finally, if you’re interested in using Bitfocus’ 2020 HMIS Data Standards Sample Paper Forms, the Word and PDF versions for editing, downloading and printing are now available on our website.
Thank you for your continued cooperation as we work to implement the 2020 HUD HMIS Data Standards.
If you have any questions about these upcoming changes, please reach out to our friendly Technical Support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will be happy to assist you.
