Subject: Reminder-- Active Confirmation of TG Numbers (SAIG Mailboxes) and Electronic Services User Accounts Required by December 13, 2013 to Maintain Access to Federal Student Aid Systems

As a reminder, every organization enrolled for a Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) account is required to review and validate its assigned TG numbers by December 13, 2013. Currently, approximately 54 percent of accounts still require validation. Failure to complete this process by December 13, 2013 will result in loss of access to Federal Student Aid data systems, including services such as Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) deliveries, ISIR requests, Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) corrections, and National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) enrollment reporting and updates.

Accounts that must be validated include TG numbers with access to the NSLDS Professional Access Web site, the eCampus-Based (eCB) Web site, and all FAA Access to CPS Online and EDconnect user accounts. It also includes TG numbers enrolled for SAIG batch services for NSLDS, the Central Processing System (CPS), the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System, and the Financial Management System (FMS). Each organization must provide active confirmation that enrolled staff still require the access they have or delete the users that no longer need accounts.

Note: The 2013 active confirmation process does not include Destination Point Administrators (DPAs) who were enrolled earlier this year for a new TG number solely for the COD Online Service. These newly-enrolled DPAs are exempt from the active confirmation process this year. However, please note the following two key points:

  • The Primary DPA for a user that is enrolled solely for the COD Online Service is still responsible for maintaining (i.e., adding, modifying, or deleting) the user's access to the COD Web site.

  • If the COD Online Service was added to an existing TG number that had other SAIG services attached, such as NSLDS Online, active confirmation will need to be completed by the Primary DPA.

To perform the account validation process, each organization’s Primary DPA must follow the steps outlined below for both the organization's SAIG mailboxes (Destination Points/TG numbers) and Electronic Services accounts.

Note: The Primary DPA must have an FSA User ID to complete the process described below. To obtain an FSA User ID, go to https://fsawebenroll.ed.gov/PMEnroll/PMAccountServlet.jrun, provide identifying information, and follow the remaining registration steps. Once the registration process is complete, including establishing a password, the FSA User ID will be e-mailed to the Primary DPA.
