As a result, Secure Systems will not be available during the prior weekend (from Friday, September 11, beginning at 8:00 pm (EST) through Monday, September 14, ending at 7:00 am). The system release will provide PHAs the functionality to once again input their annual financial data directly into the Financial Assessment System (FASS) on-line system in lieu of using the Excel Financial Data Schedule (FDS) Tool.
