9 Why changes were made Align Oregon’s service and unit definitions with new Administration on Aging (AoA) State Program Report (SPR) requirements approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and published May 25, 2010 with Oregon’s effective date beginning July 1, 2011 and with Oregon Administrative Rule.
10 We are required to annually report NAPIS data to the federal government. NAPIS (National Aging Programs Information System) refers to an old federal data collection system. The system no longer exists, but the term remains in use and represents client, service and expenditure data. WHY is this “stuff” important?

38 The Roster number is auto-assigned. A client list appears by default for a number of reasons: a) units were entered directly into the client file or b) clients were on Roster last month. 1) Select Modify Roster to view all clients with this service and “site” in their OAA Service profile.
39 Results of selecting “Modify Roster” 1.Highlight & Move to Roster or use Select All checkbox 2.Push OK button Voila! Names are in Roster
40 The gang’s all here now. Notice I selected “ALL” for the qualifier. That is because as I moved names from the “Approved” list to the “Roster” I selected the applicable qualifier. Once I exited the Roster screen the names appeared here and I entered the units of service.
41 What about a visitor who receives a registered service? 1) Populate the “Other Units/Guests” box with the number of clients and units received. Note: Remember, a guest is 1-3 visits.
42 Review of creating an OAA Batch and populating the fields. 1)Choose Select from menu bar 2)Highlight OAA Batch or use Ctrl+O shortcut 3)Select existing Batch or create new by populating the fields left to right 4)If units are already in client files – these client names will auto-populate in the Batch. To ensure you have all clients you wish to be in your Batch select Modify Roster from the bottom right hand area (see next slide for more)
43 Review of creating an OAA Batch, continued 5)Highlight client names in Approved list (or select “All” if applicable) (remember all names in the Approved list are those clients with the service and site location listed on their OAA Svc/FCSP tab) 6)Move the clients to the Roster 7)Enter the units of service 8)Upon exiting the Batch screen all information will be saved 9)You can re-enter batch and modify as needed. (Details on how to do this are in upcoming slides)
44 And now batching U N R E G I S T E R E D S E R V I C E S
45 1) For Unregistered Services use the “Other Units/Guests”. Populate the box with client and unit counts. Note: “New Guests” really means “Unduplicated Clients”. Be careful not to duplicate client counts by entering the same client count each month. Populating a roster is recommended to avoid duplication.
