**It is important that TI Participants check the TI web page on a weekly basis for program information and updates to Core Component documents. Be sure to check the version date of each document to ensure you are referencing the latest version**
 

TARGETED INVESTMENTS YEAR 3 TIPS

Many Targeted Investments Year 3 Milestones require the participants to perform 'Self Audits' across all six Areas of Concentration.

 
Self Auditing is a process where the participants attest to meet a percentage target based on their own review of a random sample of records.

 
AHCCCS has made available a list of resources to provide guidance to participants on performing these Self Audits.

 
1. A written instruction/guidance sheet is available outlining the ways to select a random sample with or without using Microsoft Excel or a more powerful software program.

 
2. An Online video tutorial is available for better understanding of the technique of random sampling.

 
3.A Worksheet to calculate the percentage results for all the Milestones that require Self audits across all six Areas of Concentration.

 
Each of these tools will be made available soon at a convenient location on the TI Webpage shortly.

 
DON'T DELAY!!

 
In order to successfully achieve TI Year 3 Milestones, we recommend your organization starts working on them right away. Many Year 3 Milestones require a longer lead time than Year 2 Milestones.

 
NOTE: Please ensure that all the data required to perform self audits are being tracked by your organization.

 
 
DON'T PRINT THE CORE COMPONENT DOCUMENTS!!
 
The most up to date Milestone documents versions are on the TI Webpage. We strongly recommend you to refer to the TI Web page to access them every time to ensure you are referring to the most up to date TI requirements. The TI team will notify you of Milestone revisions, which can occur intermittently as clarification or addition detail is needed. And always be sure to check the version date at the end of each document to ensure you are referencing the latest version.

 


WEB PAGE UPDATES

All guidance and educational material pertaining to Targeted Investments Year 2 will be archived on the AHCCCS Document Archive page shortly. The link will be provided in the next outgoing communication. 




BE AWARE!

Please be aware of suspicious emails you may receive that have attached invoices of "TI Payments" that contain malicious viruses.  If you believe you received a suspicious email (not from AHCCCS email addresses, urging you to download the attached file, misspelled words) please contact us to verify legitimacy and then notify your IT department of the threat.
