Our CoC uses a module outside of our HMIS to collect assessment data as part of our coordinated entry process; is this permissible?

Yes - However, it is important to note that data collected for assessment—which could be as simple as scores from assessment tools or something more complex—is not necessarily the same as data collected for HMIS. To the extent that the data overlaps and if your CoC plans to import the data into the HMIS at any point, the CoC must ensure that the module meets all HMIS data and technical standards (i.e., the data collected complies with the 2014 HMIS Data Standards, HUD security policies, and meets any other requirements).
