Re: Tip of the Week: FISAP Edit Compare Report & Perkins Field

This week's tip highlights a feature or process in the FISAP for Windows software: Resolving Perkins field on Edit Compare Report

Starting November 11, the FISAP processor sent edit files (message class FISA00OP) to the Title IV WAN mailboxes of those institutions submitting FISAP data. These files need to be drawn down using EDConnect and imported into your FISAP for Windows Version 1.0 software.

If the Perkins Cohort Default Rate field appears on the Import Edit Compare Report, simply open page 4 of the Perkins section and save the data. The software will recalculate and save the correct Cohort Default Rate value.

If you have any questions on the FISAP Software, please contact CPS Customer Service at 1-800-330-5947, option 2, or via e-mail at CPS@NCS.COM. Questions regarding the FISAP data should be directed to the FISAP Processor at 1-301-565-0032. Questions on the FISAP edits and whether they necessitate a resubmission of your FISAP data should be referred to the Financial Management Specialist for your region. The number for your specialist can be found in the on-line help of the FISAP software or in your FISAP instruction booklet.
