Subject: 2013-2014 EDE Technical Reference (Final)

We are pleased to announce the posting of the complete version of the 2013-2014 Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) Technical Reference. The EDE Technical Reference provides programmer specifications, record layouts, and other detailed information for schools or other organizations that need to design software systems to interface with Federal Student Aid's application processing system.

The posting adds 2013-2014 versions of the Cover, Table of Contents, Overview, EDE Processing, Processing Codes, and Printing sections. Updated versions of the Record Layouts section and the ISIR Cross Reference table (now part of the Processing Codes section), which have been modified from the drafts posted in July 2012, are also included in this posting.

In addition to its current availability on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site, the technical reference 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.
