Welcome to the grantee section of the Payback Information Management System (PIMS) website. This website provides answers to Frequently Asked Questions about service obligation regulations and how to navigate the PIMS. It also provides a portal to the PIMS online database to collect scholar contact, training and service obligation information for use in tracking the fulfillment of scholars’ service obligation and reporting RLTT program performance measures.
Grantees must enter into PIMS the name, address, email address, social security number, training information and service obligation details of each scholar funded by a RLTT grant, as well as provide any other information that is necessary to carry out the Secretary’s functions. Grantees must also upload into PIMS the completed and signed Payback Agreement, Certification of Eligibility for Federal Assistance in Certain Programs, proof of U.S. citizenship or legal permanent resident status, and completed and signed Exit Certification, once the scholar exits or completes the program. Grantees must also review scholar employment records submitted by scholars to ensure they meet the eligibility criteria. Project Directors may register one additional staff member for login access to PIMS. Project Directors and the additional staff member will receive an email from PIMS with login instructions for accessing their account in PIMS.
