LSA Export Update

LSA Export Update We are working with Abt to get updated LSA Sample Code. We will send out an announcement when we have updated the LSA export with the HUD changes. Abt recommends that our customers continue to review the non-vendor errors/warnings in their flag files to determine what fixes, if any, are needed and then resubmit the file to get the errors cleared. Abt does not recommend that customers wait for vendors to make their changes before fixing any non-vendor errors/warnings. Next week we will be releasing a revised "0227 - Project Descriptor Data Elements Data Quality" ART Gallery report with revisions specifically to make it easier to find LSA related provider data quality issues. More details will be provided when we send out the ART Gallery update announcement early next week. Please create a case in the Customer Community if you have further questions.
