CSP Excel Add-In

This link will take you to a page with the most updated CSP Excel add-in and download instructions. This add-in runs a logic check and translates the Excel Matrix(es) data into XML code that can be uploaded to the CSP website. We recommended that you wait until you are ready to submit the Matrix(es) before downloading or updating the add-in; this will ensure that you have the most recent version available.

If at any point you experience difficulty with this process, please let CSP staff know so we can assist you with submission.

CSP File Upload Page

After passing this final check, data will be submitted to the CSP database. Once you have successfully submitted your data through the upload page, please also email the Excel Matrices to CSP staff.

If at any point you experience difficulty with this process, please let CSP staff know so we can assist you with submission.
