IDIS Projects can be set up one of two ways:
The recommended approach for all grantees is to create new IDIS Projects through the AP-35 Projects screens during the set-up of their Annual Action Plan. IDIS automatically adds a new project created through the AP-35 Projects screen into the list of projects in the Projects tab of IDIS, even if the status of the Action Plan is still "Open In-Progress." However, if the project was first created in IDIS, to avoid the duplication of projects the grantee should add that existing project to the AP-35 Projects table in the Action Plan instead of creating a new project.
For guidance on adding and editing projects in the AP-35 screen, please see page 222 of the Consolidated Plan in IDIS Desk Guide.
