How do I take the Assessment?
If you are not the assessment leader for your coalition, most likely you will receive an email with a link from that person to start your assessment. If you haven't gotten one by June 10th, contact that person to ask for the link for your assessment. You should tell them whether you are part of a health department (to take the P2PHE Compass) or not (to take the AACT).
If you are not sure who the assessment leader is for your cohort, contact the lead applicant to ask, or to volunteer if you have some prior experience with administering assessments.
If you ARE the assessment leader for your coalition:

The links to start your cohort for either assessment are in the application and repeated here.
P2PHE Compass for all Health Department Members
NOTE: Please be sure that all of the assessments for your coalition use the same link (one each for Compass and AACT). Save the link you get when you first register your assessment and distribute that link to ALL the takers in your coalition.
Information on Unique Entity IDs
All applicants will need to have a government-issued Unique Entity ID issued by SAM.gov.
Note that you do not need to register the Unique Entity ID, a more complicated process, but just get it, which largely means verifying your legal business name and address. If you have an old identifier, like a DUNS number, you may need to validate that number in the new system.
