[CFDA No. 84.033]
Student Financial Assistance, Federal Work-Study Programs; Notice
of the Closing Date for Submission of the Campus-Based Reallocation
Form (ED Form E40-4P)
SUMMARY: The Secretary gives notice that institutions of higher
education participating in the Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program must
submit the Campus-Based Reallocation Form by August 25, 2000 to request
supplemental FWS funds for the 2000-2001 award year (July 1, 2000
through June 30, 2001). The information collected is used to determine
whether an institution is eligible to receive supplemental FWS funds
for the 2000-2001 award year.
DATES: Closing Date and Method for Submitting a Campus-Based
Reallocation Form. If you participated in the FWS Program for the 1999-
2000 award year and want to ensure that you will be considered for
supplemental FWS funds for the 2000-2001 award year, you must submit
the electronic Campus-Based Reallocation Form by August 25, 2000.
The new Fiscal Operations Report for 1999-2000 and Application to
Participate for 2001-2002 (FISAP) software that you received in July
2000 also contains the Campus-Based Reallocation Form (E-40-4P). The
Campus-Based Reallocation Form electronic data must be transmitted via
the Department's Student Aid Internet Gateway (formerly Title IV Wide
Area Network or Title IV WAN). Specific information on this electronic
transmission is provided in ``Dear Partner'' letter CB-00-11 that was
issued in July 2000. Transmit the Reallocation Form data to us only if
you are releasing 1999-2000 campus-based funds or are requesting
supplemental 2000-2001 FWS funds.
Although the FISAP is not due until October 1, 2000, you must
complete the Campus-Based Reallocation Form electronic data
transmission prior to midnight, Eastern time, on August 25, 2000. (For
purposes of this notice, this deadline means that an institution has
all of August 25, 2000, to transmit electronically.)
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department will reallocate unexpended
FWS Federal funds from the 1999-2000 award year as supplemental
allocations for the 2000-2001 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(d) 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 2000-2001 award year, you must
submit the Campus-Based Reallocation Form data by August 25, 2000.
