THIS MESSAGE: Clarifies an earlier message about the implementation of the 2000-2001 release of the Recipient Financial Management System


Last week we announced the implementation of the 2000-2001
release of the Recipient Financial Management System (RFMS) and
informed you that RFMS is currently available to receive Origination
records for the 2000-2001 processing year.

However, not all institutions may presently be capable of submitting records.
If you:
- Use a third party software vendor and your vendor has not
distributed software for the 2000-2001 processing year

- Are a mainframe school and your institution has not
completed development for the 2000-2001 processing year, or

- You use EDExpress

you may not yet be able to submit Pell Grant records to the RFMS.

EDExpress version 6.2, which includes the Pell Module for the 2000-2001
award year, will be available for download from the SFAdownload Web site
on May 12, 2000.

We apologize for any confusion and thank you for your patience. If you have
any questions please call the Pell Grant Hotline at 1-800-4PGRANT
(800-474-7268) or e-mail us at #pell_sysyems@ed.gov.
