Questions and Answers
Q. How do I receive my edits?
A. The FISAP on the Web process no longer requires schools to import an edit report. Schools now review their edit messages by clicking “validate” or “validate all” from the left navigation bar on the website. A list of any validation error numbers with the corresponding error messages will be generated.
Q. How do I correct my FISAP data?
A. You will be able to either log or fix your validation errors.
· A “Fix Error” button is located to the right of each validation error message. Clicking this button will take you to the FISAP page where the error last occurred, and identify all other pages where that same error has occurred. You may then fix all fields related to the error.
· A “Log” check box is located next to each validation error. Clicking this button will display the Additional Information Page where you may provide any information you think will be relevant to that error message.
Q. How can I report my Perkins cash on hand as of October 31, 2003?
A. You will need to access the FISAP on the Web after October 31, 2003, enter a figure for Part III, Section A, field 1.2 (even if the figure is zero), make any other required changes or comments, and then submit the FISAP by clicking the submit button.
Q. If I am not a Perkins school and I have already resolved or provided an explanation for my edits, do I need to respond?
A. No, the Department will continue to review your explanations and if more information or action is needed, we will contact you directly.
Q. What is the deadline date for submitting edit corrections and Perkins Cash on hand as of October 31, 2003?
