  • 3. Introduction This guide is for local authorities who are bidding for Social Housing Grant funding and provides step-by-step guidance on how to enter bids for funding in the Homes and Communities Agency’s Investment Management System (IMS). The most recent version of this guide is published at http://www.homesandcommunities.co.uk/help We recommend use of the electronic version of this guidance to make full use of the bookmarks in the document. i) Registering to use IMS Local authorities who are bidding for funding must register to use the Investment Management System. The registration procedures can be found at http://www.homesandcommunities.co.uk/new_user. Please note: Bids for Social Housing Grant cannot be submitted using a local authority’s existing three digit LA Code and IMS logon. In order to submit bids to the HCA, the local authority must submit a new IMS registration request to the HCA and a new citrix id, NP code and security administrator log-on details will be provided to the local authority. As part of the registration process, each local authority will have to nominate a primary security administrator who will then be responsible for creating user accounts for users from their local authority. ii) Configuring your network and firewall to use IMS Please refer to the connectivity guide sent to your Security Administrator. The connectivity guide details the necessary technical steps and procedures required to access the Investment Management System. Submitting bids in IMS: Guidance for local authorities v1.2 Page 3 of 71
  • 4. iii) Setting-up users with appropriate authorities in IMS Security In order to input and submit bids in IMS, the security administrator for each local authority must set-up a user/users in IMS Security with the correct security authorities attached to the User Id. There is no limit on the number of IMS users that each local authority can have. Guidance on how to add users will be sent to each local authority’s nominated IMS security administrator. A quick guide showing how to add users is also included in Annex 1 of this Guide. The Security Administrator needs to add the following IMS security authorities to a user in order for that user to be able to complete steps 1 to 5 in this guidance. • URB Partnership Sign-Off (Step 1) • URB Maintain Forecast (Step 4) • Unregistered Body Maintain Agreement (Steps 2 and 5) • Unregistered Body Submit Agreement (Step 5) • Unregistered Body Submit Sub-Project (Steps 3, 4 and 6) Please note that the Security Administrator does not have the authority within IMS to complete the 5-step process to submitting bids as set out in the guidance below. iv) Logging onto the system Once the local authority’s systems are all configured to use IMS: Start web browser and navigate to the URL https://www.housingcorp-online.org Input citrix userid (8-digit numerical id) and password in the Login box in the screen below: Submitting bids in IMS: Guidance for local authorities v1.2 Page 4 of 71

  • 10. Step 1: Create the IMS Partnership If submitting bids for the first time in the current programme period (2008-11), local authorities will have to create a Partnership record in IMS. This Partnership record will be valid until 31st March 2011 and local authorities would be able to submit bids using this Partnership record if there are further bid rounds in this programme period. Local authorities who have already created the Partnership record and submitted bids in a previous bid round should proceed to Step 3. 1.1 Navigating to the Partnership Screen From the IMS System Manager screen above, select Bids > Partnerships/Specialists: In the subsequent Partnership Screen select Partnerships > Select Submitting bids in IMS: Guidance for local authorities v1.2 Page 10 of 71
