New report replaces ARD

City Partners—

We heard you! You told us the printable and shareable Agency Requirements Document (ARD) helps you do your work more easily. The ARD is not used in ATLAS, which was a problem for some.

So, our team worked with developers this month to come up with a solution.

Please use the City Endorsement Information report to replace the ARD in your internal processes.
Here are instructions and a sample.
  1. In ATLAS Partner Portal, open reports Launchpad
  2. Choose City Endorsement Information report
  3. Enter the 16-digit UBI number in "Account ID" field
    • "Endorsement" field must show one of your city’s endorsement types
  4. Click [Generate] button to bring up Details screen
  5. Click [View Report] on Details screen
  6. Print or email or save the PDF and route for review
