RE: Start Up of 2001-2002 Pell Grant Disbursement Record Processing
The Federal Pell Grant Program will begin accepting disbursement records for the 2001-2002 Award Year beginning June 21, 2001. (This date was published in the Federal Register July 10, 2000.)
June 21st is the first date of the valid date range for disbursements submitted to RFMS for the 2001-2002 award year. Please keep in mind that while disbursement records will be accepted, processed, and acknowledgments will be returned, funds will not be available for drawdown until July 1, 2001.
While the Recipient Financial Management System will begin accepting disbursement records on June 21, 2001, please consult with your internal Information Systems department or software provider to confirm that your system is prepared to submit disbursement records to RFMS on or after June 21. EDExpress users must use version 7.2 in order to submit disbursement records for 2001-2002.
If you have further questions or concerns please call the Pell Customer Service Hotline at 1-800-4PGRANT (800-474-7268) or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
