Welcome to the SCSEP Help Website

SCSEP PY20 End-of-Year QPRs
11 PM EDT, Monday, September 27
All PY20 data should be entered into SPARQ.

Morning of Tuesday, September 28
All grantees should take a final look at their Data Quality Reports (DQRs). If any cross-grantee errors have arisen, please notify SCSEP Help at once so that they may help resolve these issues. It is strongly recommended that no additional data be entered. Please use this time solely to resolve any remaining errors.

12 noon EDT, Wednesday, September 29
SPARQ will close for the processing of the PY20 End-of-Year QPRs. Any data entered on the afternoon of September 29 will not be reflected in the PY20 End-of-Year QPRs.

 
SPARQ is Available
SPARQ is now available.

Since the overnight duration jobs ran last night, the durational limit dates are now up-to-date.  
PY20 Q4 QPRs
The PY20 Q4 QPRs are final. QPR measures with very small counts may not be representative and should be used with caution. 
Durational Limit Dates
The overnight duration jobs ran last night so durational limit dates are now up-to-date. 
SPARQ Release 8.3 - Tuesday, June 1, 2021

Persistent Unemployment 2018 - 2020 Table
For newly enrolled participants on or after January 1, 2021, you must use the new table to receive credit in the Most-in-Need measure on the PY20 QPR.

For any existing participant who was enrolled prior to January 1, 2021, you will receive credit in the Most-in- Need on the PY20 QPR if either the new table or the old table (2017-2019) supports the factor.

The table for 2018-2020 should only be used by data validators. Validators should refer to the Data Validation Handbook for details.

The most recent data can be accessed from the “Participant Search” screen under “Systems Tools,” and from the WDCS enrollment record.

Resetting Passwords

A security enhancement has been made to the SPARQ login page.  Previously, a user who forgot the password could request that the password be sent via e-mail.  Since it is not secure to send current passwords via e-mail, that function has been replaced.  The new function now allows a user to reset the password.  The following message is displayed at the bottom of the login screen:

 

To reset your password, enter your user ID then click here, and you will be sent an e-mail containing your temporary login information.

 

When the user logs in with the temporary password, it will be necessary to change the password immediately.  This new function can be used by a user who has forgotten the password, or by a user who has accidentally locked the account by entering an incorrect password three times.  Users with expired accounts will not be able to use this reset function.  Instead, they will receive the following message:

 

You cannot reset your password because your password is expired. Please contact your administrator



 For questions about your user ID or password, please contact your grantee administrator.
