Web-Based Computer System
State Education Department staff developed a Mandated Services Aid Web-based System. The system is accessed via the Department’s web portal (http://portal.nysed.gov). The Mandated Services Aid Web-based System was necessary to improve internal controls and the efficiency of the claims process for nonpublic school mandated services reimbursement aid. Schools began entering claims into the online system for the 2006-07 school year.
The new system was designed to greatly enhance the application process as well as expedite the review process and the issuance of your school's mandated services aid payment. Schools are strongly encouraged to use the Mandated Services online system. The user guide for the online system is available below. The format for each mandate and the applicable time and effort standards in the MSA-1 and Schedule A/Worksheet for the applicable school year are being used as the source documents for the data entry screens.
For password and user code assistance, please contact the SED Delegated Account System (SEDDAS) Help number at: 518-473-8832. For other technical assistance, please contact the Mandated Services Aid office at: 518-474-3936.
Paper forms will still be accepted and will be entered into the computer system by department staff. Schools that choose to use paper forms will need to send a completed MSA-1 form and the Schedule A/Worksheet.
