The SOS is a web-based data system for SDPI Community-Directed grant programs. All programs are required to submit Required Key Measure (RKM) data for their Target Group for their selected Diabetes Best Practice via the SOS. See below for additional information.

Target Group Information

The Target Group is made up of the individuals (members) who will be included in the activities/services a program provides for their selected Diabetes Best Practice. In the Project Narrative for the SDPI FY 2017 grant application, programs provided information about their Target Group, including the anticipated number of members and a brief description. This information must be entered into the SOS before any RKM data can be submitted.


Required Key Measure Data Submission – When

Each Diabetes Best Practice has one Required Key Measure. SDPI grant programs must submit baseline and final RKM data via the SOS for their Target Group. Due dates for FY 2017 and 2018 are listed below.

  1. FY 2018
    1. Baseline (Required): Submit by February 28, 2018
    2. Mid-Year (Optional): Submit by June 29, 2018
    3. Final (Required): Submit by January 31, 2019 (Based on the time period Jan 1 to Dec 31, 2018)

Grantees may also submit RKM data more often, if that is possible and helpful for their program.


Required Key Measure Data Submission – How

RKM data can be submitted into the SOS in three different ways:

SOS Checklists
  1. WebAudit (preferred): Enter or upload individual data into the Diabetes WebAudit and "pull" it into SOS.
  2. Individual: Enter a list of Target Group members and their RKM data into the SOS, which will calculate a numerator and denominator.
  3. Aggregate (least preferred): Enter a numerator and denominator for RKM directly into the SOS. Note: To use this method for your Final RKM data, a waiver will be required.

Additional Information

Detailed information about the SOS will be provided through training webinars. See the SOS training webpage for more information.
