IMS/PIC Upgrade Information
Recently, the Inventory Management/Public Housing Information Center (IMS/PIC) system was upgraded to align with industry best practices for security and data integrity. You can read the initial notification that was sent out here. A follow-up notification was sent out to PHAs on 03/26/20 to notify them that the system was up and ready to use.
We are maintaining a list of known issues and will update it as needed. That list can be found here (last updated 03/22/21). Please note that the workaround files previously posted are no longer needed since those issues have been fixed.
PIH Information Center is now IMS/PIC!
PIC is evolving into the PIH Inventory Management System or IMS. During the 3-year transition period, we are using the terminology IMS/PIC to refer to the evolving system. IMS/PIC is responsible for maintaining and gathering data about all of PIH's inventories of HAs, Developments, Buildings, Units, HA Officials, HUD Offices and Field Staff and IMS/PIC Users.
