9 Schools & Libraries Division, USAC September 17-18, The information on this slide is believed to be true and accurate as of September 4, Using a PIN (contd) uThe system will check for a match between User ID and PIN. uIf so, the application record will be updated to indicate a status of Certified, and a confirmation message will be displayed. uThe applicant will be encouraged to print the screen and file with the rest of the application.

10 Schools & Libraries Division, USAC September 17-18, The information on this slide is believed to be true and accurate as of September 4, Using a PIN (contd) uUser ID, PIN, and pertinent data from the form are captured, saving a "picture" of the data about which the applicant is certifying. uNo part of the application should be sent to SLD. uItem 21 attachments for Form 471 will still need to be submitted on paper to Kansas.
