The EIV Information Technical (IT) team has advised us of an issue that is preventing approximately 2,455 MF EIV users with an HUD Systems Coordinator (HSC) role or an HUD Systems User (HSU) role from obtaining a complete Deceased Tenant Report. Specifically, properties that are assigned to an M-ID with only a contract number or only a project number will not appear in the Deceased Tenant Report. If a property is assigned to an M-ID with both a contract number and a project number, the property continues to appear in the Deceased Tenant Report.
