|Choosing a AUP|
Each CPA firm is treated as a single ‘user’ with the username tied to an email address. Since a firm could have multiple auditors working on multiple AUP’s for LHA’s in their portfolio, it is recommended that this username and password be shared by members within a CPA firm.
Step 1: DHCD Admin registers a CPA firm’s details which include the email id for username
Step 2: The system generates and sends an email with subject “Agreed Upon Procedures” to the CPA firm email id with a link to activate the account.
Step 3: The user uses the link and creates a password thereby activating the account. This activation needs to be done within 72 hours of receiving the link, after which the link expires.
If this 72 hour window for activation is missed, contact DHCD admin and the link will be re-sent.
If this login information needs to be updated at any point, contact the DHCD Admin and a new link will be created for activating the new account.
On the AUP home page https://dhcdaup.com/ enter the username (email address) and the password that you created while activating the account.
Once you are logged in you may choose to do any of the following:
The bell icon on the top right shows notifications of messages received. A message shows up in the ‘Received Messages’ each time an LHA responds to an AUP and submits it back to the auditor. Similarly, all AUP’s sent to LHA’s generate a message in the ‘Sent Messages’.
Also, when the auditor submits an AUP to DHCD, a message is generated to let DHCD users know that their AUP has been submitted – with or without follow-up (i.e. with or without exceptions). This will appear under the ‘Sent Messages’.
The bell icon continues to show the number of notifications, until the message is ‘Marked as Read’
To view an AUP, on selecting the LHA FYE, the current ‘Status’ of that AUP will be displayed as-
Clicking the Continue button would take the user to the AUP form for that LHA FYE.
