July 2019

Hi Flex Folks,

It was great to see everyone (and talk to most of you) at the Flex Reverse Site Visit (RSV) the second week of July. Thank you for traveling from all over the country to join us for two days of Flex-focused content. I hope you got a lot out of the meeting. Please be specific when you fill out your meeting evaluations and let the Technical Assistance and Services Center (TASC) team know what went well and what we should improve for next year.

Do you have a great takeaway or a burning question from the RSV? Post it in the Flex Forum and let’s have a discussion.

Of course the Flex award cycle never stops, as you saw in the busy timeline in our Flex Program update. The Notices of Award (NOAs) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 will come out in August and the Performance Improvement and Measurement System (PIMS) will open for FY  2018 reporting on September 1, 2019. I’ve scheduled a webinar for August 22, 2019, to review the end-of-year reporting and the new NOAs. See the save-the-date message sent through the Flex mailing list for more details.

Do you have questions about the year-end reports or other topics? Please send them to TASC and to me by August 20, 2019, and we will address them on the webinar.

Happy back-to-school month to those with children and happy vacation to those who are taking some time away from the office for summer fun. I’ll talk to you in August.
