Committees

Data Quality Steering Committee (DQSC)
The DQSC meets every quarter to provide direction and guidance to the data quality process set forth in the Data Quality Plan (DQP). The data quality process is administered by the HMIS Lead Agency.  
Expertise needed: Participation on this committee requires some knowledge of the HMIS system and its operations in Chicago, along with familiarity with the HMIS privacy and security policies and the DQP. Significant decisions on ongoing processes that impact data quality are made, so a commitment to attend all meetings is appreciated.
Meeting details: Contact Brian Rivera for more information.

HMIS Committee
The HMIS Committee ensures the HMIS scope aligns with the needs and requirements of agencies, HUD, and other stakeholder groups, and provides direction and guidance to the HMIS Lead on HMIS issues, including project participation, policies and procedures for participant privacy, data security, and data quality, and HMIS governance. They also hear grievances related to sanctions by the HMIS Lead Agency.
Expertise needed: Anyone looking to understand HMIS implementation in Chicago is welcome to attend.
Meeting details: The next meeting will be on Dec. 12 from 10am - noon at All Chicago (651 W. Washington, Suite 504). Please email Brian Rivera if you plan to attend.
