This tool is to be used with the following toolkit: http://www.hudhre.info/documents/HUDDataQualityToolkit.pdf.
For Continuums of Care (CoC) to have reliable data for analysis and reporting, they must develop a document that outlines program and system-level expectations for data collection and entry into the HMIS. This document, called a Data Quality Monitoring Plan, is used as the basis for developing goals for achieving quality data. To achieve these goals, CoCs must develop, implement, and monitor a data quality plan that outlines goals, tasks, task leads, and timelines and regularly assesses the progress of both programs and the CoC as a whole toward s meeting the overall data quality benchmarks. This toolkit provides a methodology for developing a data quality monitoring plan, and includes program level data quality reports for each program type, a tab for inserting the completeness benchmarks identified by the CoC and outlined in the data quality plan, and a Monthly DO Progress Report.
