Please note: The CDFI Fund is currently requesting public comment on a new CDFI Certification Application and reporting tools. Please learn more here.
AMIS Compliance and
Performance Reporting is a web-based data collection within AMIS that CDFIs and
CDEs use to submit their Institution Level Reports (ILRs) and Transaction Level
Reports (TLRs) to the CDFI Fund.
Below are links to all
of the available supporting instructional documents for how to report in AMIS.
These are for informational purposes only.
To complete and submit
the required reports, CDFIs and CDEs must enter through the AMIS system and
then access their organization’s AMIS account. Please note that the
reporting templates cited below are for reference purposes only. The latest
reporting templates must accessed and downloaded from your organization’s
account within AMIS.
If you are experiencing
any difficulties with the data entry portion of your report, including document
errors, system errors, and basic questions, please contact the AMIS Help Desk:
AMIS Service Request (as
a General Inquiry Select “AMIS-Technical Problem”)
For any questions
regarding compliance or performance reporting, please contact the CDFI Fund

CDFIs and CDEs may use any software to track and compile data to submit the TLR, however, existing systems may need to be configured to include fields for all of the AMIS data points. The CDFI Fund provides software developers and vendors the technical information needed to configure in-house or off-the-shelf products to enable CDFIs and CDEs to track and electronically submit all of the data points collected by AMIS.
Vendor Testing Opportunities: The CDFI Fund welcomes CDFIs, CDEs, and software developers to test their software against AMIS requirements. The purpose of software vendor testing is to establish that AMIS can receive and process the transaction level report (TLR) submitted by a vendor's application software package. Software will be certified as AMIS Compatible when the application testing is successfully concluded and has demonstrated that (i) the software is capable of transmitting every TLR data point via XML transfer and (ii) the data can be uploaded to AMIS in the correct format without any manual re-entry of data by the software user. Completion of interface testing does not indicate that the CDFI Fund endorses, warrants, or assumes any responsibility or liability for, in any manner whatsoever, the vendor's software package. CDFIs and CDEs that use off-the-shelf software products are encouraged to contact their software vendor(s) to inform them of this testing opportunity. CDFIs and CDEs with custom-designed software are invited to contact the CDFI Fund AMIS Help Desk (contact information above) for testing opportunities.
