What is an Update Plan?

An Update plan is created at an interim point during the plan year to analyze personnel activity and monitor progress towards any placement goals established in a preceding Annual plan. The Update Plan is always linked to the preceding Annual plan.

Working in BALANCEaap to Develop an Update Plan

When an Update plan is developed, using the Create Plan tab, the connection to the preceding Annual plan is established. (For more information, see the Help article, linked above.) This connection allows the Annual and Update plans to share the same building blocks, such as Reference Tables and Availability figures.

While working in an Update plan, the Availability module will not display in the side navigation menu. The IWD/Veterans analyses may be activated, but the results will reflect the corresponding Annual plan.

Data Requirements for an Update Plan

A new data set for the interim reporting period is required, including:

  • Roster Data table
  • Data tables for Personnel Actions
    • Applicant
    • New Hire
    • Termination
    • Transfer^

^Refer to the corresponding Annual plan to see if the Transfer table was included.
