The SPARS team is hosting two live trainings on the new version of the CSAT GPRA Tool. The new tool intends to reduce administrative burden and improve data quality. Grantees should begin using the new CSAT GPRA Tool on December 10, 2022 and will be able to enter data and batch upload data from the new tool into SPARS on January 4, 2023. Interviews using the old GPRA Tool should be completed by December 9, 2022. Data collected using the old tool must be entered into SPARS on or before noon ET January 3, 2023.
This registration is for the training on October 13, 2022, at 2pm-4pm ET. The training is also offered on October 12, 2022, at 10am-12pm ET. The trainings cover the same content so choose one that works best for you. A recording will be posted on SPARS.
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
Sessions are open to CSAT grantees, SPARS users, and GPOs responsible for collecting and submitting client-level GPRA data.
