DEAR COLLEAGUE LETTERS:
April 14, 1999: Disaster Letter 99 - 07: Tornadoes in Louisiana: Dear Guaranty Agency Director:
April 8, 1999: Action Letters #6: P-99-3: SUMMARY: This letter provides you with additional information regarding the new Recipient Financial Management System (RFMS). RFMS is designed to report and request funds for the Federal Pell Grant Program. The first step in the new RFMS process is the submission of the origination record.
April 15, 1999: FR Type: Notice: Summary : The Acting Leader, Information Management Group, Office of the Chief Information Officer, invites comments on the proposed information collection requests as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995: Page Numbers: 18608-18609.
April 9, 1999: FR Type: Notice: Summary : The Secretary announces the use of a two-tier review process to evaluate applications submitted for new awards under the FY 1999 GEAR UP program for Partnership grants. The Secretary takes this action to ensure a thorough review and assessment of the large number of applications expected to be received under the FY 1999 competition. This competition was announced previously in a notice published in the Federal Register on March 2, 1999 (64 FR 10190). That notice, however, did not explain that a two-tier review process is to be used in the
evaluation of GEAR UP Partnership applications. Because the announcement of a two-tier review process does not affect the contents of the applications in this competition, the date by which applications must be received remains as originally announced, April 30, 1999.
