IDHS/DASA PERIODIC REPORTING, FIRST QUARTER SUBMISSION STATE FISCAL YEAR 2018 EXTENSION

The Secretary of the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) has granted an extension on the deadline for quarterly reports (Quarter 1 1/ SFY 2018) from November 1, 2017 to November 20, 2017. We understand that there have been some complexities involved in the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) process and some short time frames in getting the necessary information and documentation out to community providers. We hope this extension will support the submission of the data required under GATA.

The Division of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (DASA) will be sending out the forms for you to use the week of October 16, 2017. These will come from your contract manager. Should you not receive them by October 19, 2017, please contact your contract manager.

Should you need to review the IDHS/DASA presentation on this topic, please contact your contract manager.

For your reference, we have included the links for both the GATA website and the portion of the presentation that discussed the Periodic Financial Report and Periodic Performance Report.
