HUD AAQ #127574: Sage Gender Issue
Question Status: Answered
Question ID: 127574
APR is uploading in Sage and creating a mistake through the download in the APR that is not there until the APR is load and created
I am trying to complete the APR for a project that has 14 females and 1 transgender Male to Female. I have the transgender client as Female (male to female) and this shows up correctly when I pull the APR but when the CSV files in loaded into SAGE and creates the APR, it changes it to Male (Female to Male). The local HMIS Admin tried to fix this and the same thing happened. Our APR is due now, please assist asap.
The vendor must have their code inverted. In the data dictionary, Trans Female - Male to Femail is shown first as #2 and Tans Mail Female to Male is next as # 3. However, on the APR report form, it is the other way around Male first then Female and I'm guessing they just mixed it up. (I trust you have already checked the HMIS to be sure the right field was checked for this client)
I can't correct this for you. The vendor has to do it. If the CSV file is not locked you can go in and find the tab for Q10a and change it. It should be obvious to you in there what to do. But you really should not be able to do that -- it should be locked and if it is and you open it the CSV may not upload in Sage then.
If you are worried about a deadline - submit it as it is so you are not penalized for being late with the APR and then get the vendor to correct their error. When they do regenerate the file and reopen this question and I can send the APR back to you for a quick swap out of the CSV. I can make the switch anytime before the HUD rep reviews the APR after they begin their review I can't touch it anymore and we will need them to actually reject the APR for you to correct it.
Thanks for being such a good advocate for this Trans person and worrying that their data is accurately reported.
