CED Gaining Access to the On-Line Data Collection System

This resource is available as a printable PDF.

The On-Line Data Collection system (OLDC) is where you will submit your semi-annual Performance Progress Reports (PPRs). OLDC is accessed through GrantSolutions, but it is a separate system.

If your organization received a new CED grant or if a new staff member needs access to a grant in OLDC, access is granted by completing the Request for OLDC Access Form.

Note: When an organization that has received CED grants in the past is awarded a new CED grant, individuals with an existing GrantSolutions will use those login credentials to access new grants awarded to their organization. Often, returning grantees do not need to complete a Request for OLDC Access form. Instead, send the username you use to access the OLDC system to OCSRegistrar@icf.com Visit disclaimer page and we will grant you access. However, if new staff members who do not have an existing GrantSolutions account need access to OLDC, they will need to complete the Request for OLDC Access Form.
