Re: 2001-2002 Transactions with Dropped Institution Code will be Reprocessed
The Central Processing System (CPS) reprocessed transactions for approximately 1,500 students because of a problem that occurred from January 2 through February 8, 2001. This reprocessing was to add back Institution Code 1 that was incorrectly dropped on corrections where the Student Business/Farm Net Worth is blank on the CPS database and Federal School Code #1 (ISIR field # 91, positions 397-402) was non-blank on the transaction being corrected. The Federal School Code Housing Plans (ISIR field #92, position 403) was also added back to the record.
The CPS reprocessed the transactions for the affected students on February 16, 2001. SARs were printed and mailed to the students and ISIRs were sent to schools on February 21, 2001.
Reprocessed ISIRs can be identified by the following:
* Reprocessed Reason Code (ISIR field #264, positions 1540-1541) will equal "02"
* System Generated Indicator (ISIR field #135, positions 600) will equal "Z"
* Comment Code 172 will be present in ISIR field 261 (positions 1459-1518)
* System Generated message class: SYSG02OP
* Batch Number: #Y200000020010216000001
