ExIS File Upload Testing Guide

Many ExIS awardees deployed to VTrckS with all planned interfaces in place-Provider Master Data, Inventory Data, and Order Data. However, awardees that deferred one or more interfaces should plan to participate in ExIS testing with CDC before uploading files for any new interfaces and/or new versions. Testing ensures complete and accurate data flow between the awardee’s ExIS and VTrckS, and familiarizes awardee staff with the process of uploading ExIS files. CDC staff conducts the initial rounds of testing, and awardee staff conducts final testing in the training environment. The entire process can take up to four weeks. The ExIS File Upload Testing Guide [16 pages], posted in the VTrckS Training Library has more information.

Note that updated ExIS Specifications have also been posted.

New VTrckS Training Webinars!

Starting in August, we are launching a set of new training courses that will be geared toward all VTrckS users-whether you are a brand-new awardee staff member, or want to become more proficient in a specific area. While some titles may look similar to wave trainings, course content has been enhanced to incorporate new system functionality, hints, and tips learned during deployment.

The Ongoing Training curriculum and schedule can be found on the VTrckS Training Library and are also highlighted below. The schedule currently only shows August offerings; information on planned trainings for September onward will be added when finalized.

Logistics for ongoing training:

  • Two-hour webinars will be held Wednesdays at 2:00 pm ET
  • The dial-in number for each session, Live Meeting link, and presentation will be included on the posted schedule
  • We recommend e-mailing the Contact Center to register in advance, so the training team can send you a calendar invitation with the webinar info and materials attached
  • Every course will be recorded; recordings can be obtained by e-mailing the Contact Center
