Helpful Tips

How do we get these ad hoc reports? Via email? [+]

Beginning on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 5, these AFR reports are electronically transmitted, on a daily basis, to each agency as part of the agency’s system reports and Ad Hoc reports. Agencies will receive these reports on Sept. 6. These reports are located behind the Ad Hoc reports banner (cover page). No, they are not sent via email — they are sent on the transmission agencies get with the DAFRs.
