I'd be more than happy to
help out if there are any bugs in the
application. I am really not aware of any. I know there are many
reimbursement requests with incomplete information that were rejected,
but the application allows the TSP committee to decide what to do with them.
Again, if there is anything I can help with, let me know.
'Bug' may have been the wrong word (though at the time was our
understanding), 'issues' was certainly the case.
Stuff like the application allowing the process to continue to a very
advanced stage with incomplete information certainly seemed buggy at
the time' and certainly caused 'issues' for some of us who applied
through the TSP - myself included
It's not a bug, is a feature :-) Seriously, it was intentional. One of
the design goals of the application was to fully rely on the TSP
Committee criteria, because they are the only people empowered to take
decisions on what should be approved and what not. We didn't wanted the
application to interfere or to take the power away from the Committee.
The apparent inability to edit/delete/reupload a

those of us who were struck by the first issue now need to do just
that in order to provide a signed confirmation with the complete
Obviously, this is not intuitive enough because most people got confused
in this point. Currently, when the applicant modifies the reimbursement
request and submits a new version, it needs to be approved again by the
TSP Committee (because it has changed) and then accepted again by the
applicant (because the TSP Committee can change things before approving
it). Only in this moment (after the approval and before the acceptance),
the applicant is allowed to substitute the old signed confirmation with
a new one. So once again, is a feature (introduced to ensure the
integrity of the process), but it's true that is a confusing feature.
Since the meeting we know the situation has progressed
TSP committee is keeping us in the loop and singing your praises, I'm
confident things will become much better in the future.
Sure. Things are smooth in the first try. :-)
