RE: Tip of the Week: Identifying NSLDS Post-Screened 1999-2000 ISIRs
This week's tip highlights an important EDE process: Identifying NSLDS
Post-Screened 1999-2000 ISIRs
NSLDS transmits a file to CPS every two weeks containing previously
screened student IDs that have had a status change on the NSLDS database.
These status changes affect the students' eligibility for financial aid.
This NSLDS file is matched against the CPS database, and the selected
records are processed and initiate system-generated ISIRs.
These NSLDS "post-screened" ISIRs are sent to destination points under the
SARA00OP or the SYSG00OP message class.
To identify post-screened ISIRs, check the System Generated Indicator,
which is in position 503 on the 1999-2000 ISIR record. If this field
contains a "N" value, the ISIR was generated as a result of NSLDS
post-screening. You can also check for the presence of ISIR comment code
004. This comment is only turned on if the ISIR was generated as the
result of the post-screening process.
Also, the batch number of system-generated ISIR files, located in
positions 444 - 466 for 1999-2000, will begin with #Z.
For further details on NSLDS Post-Screened ISIRs, see the 1999-2000 Guide
to SAR and ISIRs, page C-2.
