Update re: CSA - FY 18 Budget Template

DMH Provider Agencies:

Since the CSA budget went live on April 13, there have been several unduplicated issues reported that have prevented access to the budget template. While some organizations have submitted budgets for review, many organizations were prevented from entering information into the budget for review until this morning. Therefore, the submission deadline for the FY18 budgets for all DHS Division of Mental Health programs has been extended until NOON on May 5th. This applies to budgets only. All other documents are still due by NOON on May 1st.

Some organizations are still receiving the Error 500 message. The error is due to a missing data table in the budget that the organization is trying to edit. Unfortunately this can only be resolved by starting the budget over. Please add a new budget and start with the categories you received the Error 500 message on. You should then be able to enter those successfully in the new budget and then proceed with the rest of the categories. Once all is entered successfully, please delete the original budget.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and cooperation as these new processes are implemented.
