HMIS FAQ
Q

If information we are collecting should match legal documents, are we required to verify that the information the client is providing matches their legal documents? For example, should we require clients to provide copies of drivers’ licenses or social security cards?

A

For HMIS, no. You are not required to verify that the information provided matches legal documents. However, each project should be aware of funders’ recordkeeping requirements for eligibility, and if maintaining copies of legal documents is a requirement, they should be collected and information updated in HMIS accordingly.
