Overview of OSCAR/CAISI system's search capabilities.

If you are unable to see a client in the client list, and before you add a new client to the system, you may need to do a search to ensure the client is not already in the system.

 You can search the main OSCAR system for the client, or you can search for the client in CAISI Program Management Module.
