Subject: 2012-2013 Application Processing System Specifications for Software Developers (March 2012 Update)

We are pleased to announce the posting of a March 2012 update to the 2012-2013 Application Processing System Specifications for Software Developers.

In this version, we updated the Complete Reject Edits section’s condition text for edit 4039 to indicate that Reject 21 should be generated when the Marital Status Date is corrected to a date greater than or equal to the Application Receipt Date and less than or equal to the Transaction Receipt Date.

The 2012-2013 CPS Test System will be updated on April 1, 2012 with the changes corresponding to the specification updates.

In addition to its current availability on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site, the specifications will also be available in the next several days from the Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site, located at https://www.fsadownload.ed.gov.

If you have questions, contact CPS/SAIG Technical Support at 800/330-5947 (TDD/TTY 800/511-5806) or by e-mail at CPSSAIG@ed.gov.
