Updating the BIA 4432 Expiration Date

Keywords: BIA 4432 indian preference OMB expiration date update
Applies To: v8.8.7+

The ProgenyES software includes the government-issued BIA 4432 Indian Preference form. As a U.S. government form, it is overseen by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and includes an expiration date requiring periodic review and update. When the expiration date is reached, if the OMB has not issued a new approval, it enters into a period of monthly renewal. To accommodate this, ProgenyES has a method of overriding the built-in expiration date on the form, enabling easy update without having to update the entire software.
