RE: Delay in GAPS Processing
A delay is occurring in the transmission of financial data from GAPS (Grant Administration and Payment System) to RFMS. RFMS is continuing to process batches of Origination and Disbursement data and forwarding the financial information to GAPS. Authorizations in GAPS will continue to be increased based upon reported disbursements. Draw downs are not affected. However, GAPS is unable to send data to RFMS indicating changes in a school's authorization level. This delay began July 14. Schools will notice a delay in the receipt of Statement of Accounts. Normal processing should return shortly. RFMS and GAPS appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
