Accessing The CIRS Manual and DED

The CIRS User Manual and Data Element Dictionary (DED) are password protected web sites. If you're still using .pdf or .hlp files on your computer, or a paper copy of those documents, please stop using them immediately.  Those are very outdated versions of our CIRS documentation and may contain  data that is now incomplete and/or incorrect.


  • The userid and password for the CIRS User Manual and the DED are the same.

  • If you don't have the userid and password, contact your CIRS Security Coordinator for the userid and password.  

  • If you do not have access to the internet, contact our office for a CD.   


If you have any questions or comments, please call the CIRS Hotline at 916-323-5694 or send email to [email protected].
