DRS Upgrade Blog

This blog contains information for employers specifically related to the upgrade of the NHRS Data Reporting System (DRS). For general employer information, please visit our main employer page.

Request for test files for PGV3 coming soon

Jun 29, 2022

NHRS has previously sent out communications focused on some of the process changes/enhancements that employers will experience with the new Data Reporting System (DRS), including information about the new File Layout and DRS Portal changes.  We also provided other documents comparing the current format (V2) of the transmittal file with the new XML file format (V3), which will be required when NHRS implements the upgraded DRS in late 2023.

NHRS is currently working with the larger payroll vendors which include: Tyler Technologies (Infinite Visions, Munis, Incode10), BMSI, Harris (Munismart, Open Windows), and Powerschool. If your payroll vendor is not listed, we suggest reaching out to your vendor to provide them with the necessary information for the DRS upgrade or to refer them to NHRS.

Employers who currently submit an XML file will soon be asked to submit a test file of the new layout, while employers who submit using Web Entry should stay tuned for information regarding submissions.

If you have questions about this update, or anything else project-related, please reach out to NHRS at Thank you.
