Q2. Do I need to do anything special in order to complete the FIR?

Yes. Although the FIR template is an Excel workbook, certain functionality: initializing the FIR for your municipality, backing up, restoring and submitting the FIR requires the template to connect with Hyperion Planning on the Ministry’s server. In order to do this, you must have installed Smart View (an Excel add-in) and you must have a valid GO Secure account. To find out more about installing Smart View and registering for a GO Secure account, please download the Registration Package posted here.
