  • Question. Our last AFG award was in 2007. When I log in it shows our current grant request along with a failed request from 2010 for the infrastructure grant but nothing prior to 2010. How would I check to see if we have a 1199a? Would it show up under our current request?

    • If your banking information changed then you'd either get an Update 1199A under the 2017 or an Update 1199A under the first awarded year. So whichever one has the current View 1199A it would change to Update.

      • Thank you. Yes our banking information did change so most likely it would show up under our 2017 request.

          One other thing you might need to know in addition to what BC79er correctly quoted to you is that the lack of seeing the 2007 AFG which you know was awarded may indicate that you have two accounts running at AFG in their records. It woudl behoove you at some point after this grant period is over and before the 2018 AFG opens to call your regional Fire Program Specialist and have then check to make sure there is not two accounts and if there is, to get them combined into one. I have found that it is not unusual at all for the old grant writer to leave and several years later when they go to apply for the grant nobody knows the old userid and password so they just open another account.

          • FYI- Spoke to a help desk person and he mentioned FEMA plans to change the 1199A "process" at some point so you will not be able to see new/pending awards by accessing the old ones. Anyone else heard this?

            Comment


            • Not likely, how else is someone going to fill out the 1199A form prior to an award if they don't have access to it? Been a while since that rumor popped up. Plus it's part of the legally required awards process just like the multi-level reviews and sign-offs before an announcement can be made.

                  Kurt,
                  This is actually what happened to my department. I took over the grant writing in 2011 for my department. However, no one knew any of the account information that the last guys was using. We were awarded in 2002, but as I said I don't have access to that account.
                  Let's say that a1199 was sent to that old account and I didn't act on it would they try to contact me any other way?
                  Thanks
                  Michael

                  • rfd18, doubtful it would happen and interfere as they would use the most current contact information they have which is your current submitted application.

                    • To echo Kurt as far as the system is designed the login from the 2002 has nothing to do with the current login for the 2017 application. They don't like multiple logins for the same department, but they were the ones fighting everybody when accounts got locked, people changed email addresses and couldn't reset passwords, etc. So people were forced to create new logins. Hence the reason they aren't so strict about editing email addresses and contacts anymore, then sending resets. Keeps the bad record count to a minimum.

                          • Well checked all mine this morning and I do NOT see anyone with an award so I am going to guess that we are not going to see any this week. I am seeing an extraordinary amount of Update profile warnings including those who already have 1199a updates accomplished.

                            • I had a update profile warning as well. Does that mean anything? I figured it was just standard computer crap.

                              • No the computer randomly asks for these from time to time it was more meant as a warning that a lot of those requests are being made and the departments should check and comply if needed so as not to have a stumbling block between them and an award.
