Question: Does your local VA staff participate in HMIS for HUD-VASH? If not, does your local housing authority assist with HMIS data entries? We have been advised by the VA to request CSV data files from the VASH team to upload into HMIS… Does anyone have experience with this process? We are trying to improve our HMIS utilization rate.

    The VA team has expressed an eagerness to participate however, the VA legal team has requested to have the indemnification clause removed from our HMIS Partner Agency MOU. We are working through the issue with County Counsel. Do other CoCs modifies their HMIS MOU for healthcare providers or large governmental agencies?

    For the County of Riverside, the Housing Authority enters the data in HMIS. We have issues with data quality. We have not done the CSV transfer and I think that is a good idea to address missing data in HMIS.
