As part of the Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS) release 11.6, the system is upgrading to a new version (9.3) of the MicroStrategy tool used for generating IDIS reports. Users will experience an enhanced look-and-feel of the web interface, as well as new features.
These resources provide an overview of MicroStrategy 9.3 and explain how users can download History List reports before the system is upgraded.
Note: This IDIS resource may not reflect grant based accounting requirements which HUD is implementing beginning with FY 2015 formula allocations. HUD has updated IDIS to phase out the first-in-first-out (FIFO) accounting methodology. These changes to IDIS ensure that formula funds are both committed and disbursed on a grant-specific basis, instead of using the FIFO (oldest money disbursed first) method that has been used for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) Programs to date. Grant funds are already committed and disbursed on a grant-specific basis for the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program in IDIS. Funds from pre-2015 grants will continue to be committed and disbursed using the FIFO method.
