Subject: Access Removed for Unconfirmed TG Numbers (SAIG Mailboxes)

In October 2010 we initiated the active confirmation process that required every organization enrolled for a Student Aid Internet Gateway (SAIG) account to review and validate its assigned TG numbers by December 17, 2010. This included TG numbers (SAIG mailboxes) with access to the NSLDS Professional Access Web site, the eCampus-Based (eCB) Web site, and all FAA Access to CPS Online user accounts. It also included validation of TG numbers enrolled for SAIG batch services for the Central Processing System (CPS), the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System, the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), the Direct Loan Servicing System (DLSS), and the Financial Management System (FMS). An Electronic Announcement posted on October 18, 2010 to the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site, as well as reminder e-mail notifications, provided detailed instructions for completing this confirmation process.

On December 28, 2010, we removed access to enrolled services for accounts that had not been actively confirmed. To restore access to these accounts the organization’s Primary Destination Point Administrator (Primary DPA) must perform the account validation process outlined below.

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.

8) The process is complete when all TG numbers have been removed from the list either by validating the numbers or, if appropriate, deleting them.
