Award Management Tutorial

Accessing Award Funds

<< Previous Page   Page 2 of 3Next Page >>


Funds are accessed through the PMS which is maintained by the DPM, Program Support Center.

Upon receipt of your award you will need to register and set up an account with PMS. A packet is sent by PMS to the requesting recipient to establish an account to draw funds in PMS/Smartlink. The packet includes the Recipient Payee Identification Number (PIN), a Direct Deposit Sign-Up Form SF-1199A (SF-1199A), a Recipient Training CD and a Primary Contact Person Form. The setup process itself is simple:

Complete the SF-1199A and Primary Contact Person forms; return both forms to the designated Account Liaison; the Account Liaison will then provide requesting recipient temporary password for PMS/Smartlink access via certified mail.

The SF-1199A provides the recipient's banking information in order to have funds electronically transmitted to recipient's banking institution. The form and its instructions - although the hardcopy is contained in the packet mentioned above - can be obtained on the PMS Web site.
