About Users and Sub-Agency Reporting

Reporting by sub-agency is optional - agencies do not have to report by sub-agency.

Reporting by sub-agency is available for CDD-801A reports - agencies cannot report by sub-agency with CDD-801B reports.

A super user has access to CDD-801A reports for all sub-agencies - a user must be assigned to one sub-agency if her or she is to enter CDD-801A reports.

A user can be assigned to only one sub-agency (or no sub-agency if the user will not enter any CDD-801A reports).

A user cannot change his or her own sub-agency assignment - only a super user can change a sub-agency assignment.
