MERLIN - Cognos Software Downloads

Agencies are responsible for purchasing their own Cognos Impromptu User licenses and keeping the annual maintenance for these licenses current. The supported version of the Cognos software, as well as the other software needed to create MERLIN reports is available on this page via secured links.  Access to the links on this page is granted to an agency once the number of Cognos licenses is verified.

Cognos license information should be updated, as necessary, on the Agency Information form in the MERLIN signup database.

Contact the MMRS Call Center at 601-359-1343 for assistance.
