DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
[CFDA No.: 84.033]
Federal Work-Study Programs
AGENCY: Department of Education.
ACTION: Notice of the closing date for institutions that participate in
the Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program to submit the Campus-Based
Reallocation Form (ED Form E40-4P).
SUMMARY: The Secretary gives notice to institutions of higher education
of the deadline for an institution that participated in the FWS Program
for the 1998-1999 award year (July 1, 1998 through June 30, 1999) to
request supplemental FWS funds for the 1999-2000 award year (July 1,
1999 through June 30, 2000). The information collected is used to
determine whether an institution is eligible to receive supplemental
FWS funds for the 1999-2000 award year.
DATES: Closing Date and Method for Submitting a Campus-Based
Reallocation Form. If you participated in the FWS Program for the 1998-
99 award year and want to ensure that you will be considered for
supplemental FWS funds for the 1999-2000 award year, you must submit
the electronic Campus-Based Reallocation Form by August 27, 1999.
The new Fiscal Operations Report for 1998-1999 and Application to
Participate for 2000-2001 (FISAP) software that you will receive in
July 1999 also contains the Campus-Based Reallocation Form (E-40-4P).
The Campus-Based Reallocation Form electronic data must be transmitted
via the Department's Title IV Wide Area Network (Title IV WAN) using
EDConnect. Specific information on this electronic transmission is
provided in ``Dear Colleague'' letter CB-99-11 that was issued in July
1999. Transmit the Reallocation Form data to us only if you are
releasing campus-based funds or are requesting supplemental 1999-2000
Although the FISAP is not due until October 1, 1999, you must
complete the Campus-Based Reallocation Form electronic data
transmission prior to midnight, Eastern time, on August 27, 1999. (For
purposes of this notice, this deadline means that an institution has
all of August 27, 1999, to transmit electronically.)
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department will reallocate unexpended
FWS Federal funds from the 1998-99 award year as supplemental
allocations for the 1999-2000 award year under the FWS Program.
Supplemental allocations will be issued this fall in accordance with
the reallocation procedures contained in the Higher Education Act of
1965, as amended (HEA). Under section 442(e) of the HEA, unexpended FWS
funds returned to the Secretary must be reallocated to eligible
institutions that used at least 10 percent of the total FWS Federal
funds granted to the institution to compensate students employed in
community services. Because reallocated FWS funds will be distributed
on the basis of fair share shortfall criteria, you must also have a
fair share shortfall to receive these funds. A fair share shortfall
means that you have an unmet need for FWS funds as determined by the
FWS allocation formula in the HEA that uses data reported on the FISAP.
You must use all the reallocated FWS Federal funds to compensate
students employed in community services. To ensure consideration for
supplemental FWS Federal funds for the 1999-2000 award year, you must
submit the Campus-Based Reallocation Form data by August 27, 1999.
