DELTA is a new online system provided by MHCLG to streamline its processes and systems for collecting statistical data and grant applications

DELTA is replacing the data collection systems for:

  • local government finance data (Excel)
  • housing and planning data (INTERFORM)
  • grant administration (LOGASnet)

Further information on DELTA is given below; please also see our Frequently Asked Questions


Timetable

DELTA will be available for live data returns from July 2017 and statistical data collections are moving to DELTA throughout 2017/18 in line with standard collection timetables. A planned schedule for statistical data returns going live on DELTA is available here.

There is no change to the data that we are collecting, or the timetable for collections; Excel forms for local government finance statistics and INTERFORM screens for housing and planning data are being re-created in DELTA. However, there will be a new look and feel to the forms and some changes to layout and validations reflecting DELTA's functionality.

LOGASnet will be replaced by a new system called DELTA in spring 2018. There will be a single switchover period of approximately two weeks when LOGASnet is closed and relevant data will be migrated over to the DELTA system.

Please visit the FAQ page for further information.


User Accounts

If you currently provide, certify or audit data through one of the MHCLG legacy systems that are being replaced by DELTA you will automatically be set up with a user account. This will be populated with the details we hold for you - email address, organisation and datasets you are responsible for.

Shortly before your data submission goes live (see schedule) you will receive an automated account activation email from no-reply.delta@communities.gov.uk. This will be sent to your user name (which is your email address) and provide you with a link to reset your password. If by this point you haven't received your user account details please contact the Helpdesk.

All users of the LOGASnet system will receive notification of their DELTA user accounts in spring 2018 prior to the switchover to DELTA.

To continue administering your data collection and/or grant-related payments, you will need to be a user on DELTA.

Further information about how to login will also be provided here.
