Questions & Answers
Q. How do I file my FISAP for 2004-2005?
A. All schools requesting participation in the campus-based programs, or reporting campus- based expenditure data are required to submit the FISAP by using the Department’s FISAP on the Web at www.cbfisap.sfa.ed.gov. This site will allow you to complete and submit your FISAP online, receive real-time validation edits, access your statement of account, view your funding levels and more.
Q. What do I need to access the site?
A. To access FISAP on the Web, you will need a PIN and a TG number from the Department. The FISAP site will use these to validate each user’s identity and access rights. For further guidance on the PIN and TG number, please refer to the attached FISAP Reference.
Q. When is my FISAP due?
A. The deadline for submission is midnight, Eastern Time, on October 1, 2003.
Q. Where will I find the Reallocation Form used for 2002-2003 unexpended funds?
A. The Reallocation form, which is due August 22, 2003, can be found in the FISAP on the Web website noted above. A separate "Dear Partner" letter on the reallocation form will be issued in July and will provide information on the reallocation process and form instructions, while the attached FISAP Reference provides additional information of a more technical nature.
Q. Where can I find answers to my questions about either process?
A. If you have any questions regarding the FISAP or reallocation processes, please call the Campus-Based Call Center at 877-801-7168.
