2016 SSVF Data Quality Report -  Fixes Applied

We have applied the following fix to the 2016 SSVF Data Quality Report for all locally hosted customers who are on version SP 5.12.31:
A date logic correction for gathering data that impacts the following rows:
  • "Head of Household" related rows
  • "RRH - Non-Homeless Living Situation" row
  • "Residence Prior to Project Entry" row
  • "HP - Homeless Living Situation" row
  • "Disabling Condition" row
  • "Homelessness Prevention Score" row
  • "Income as Percent of AMI" row
SP 5.12.31 has been retro-fitted to include these fixes for customers who have yet to upgrade to SP 5.12.31.
NOTE: We will be releasing SP 5.12.32 this afternoon to deploy a character length fix for the ExportID column in the exported files.
