The Review Implementing Agency Plans section lists each IA within the state. Click the arrow to view a list of modules for a specific IA plan.
Click the Review button to examine data from a specific module.
Review data is listed in different formats for each module:

c. Coordination & Collaboration: All details are listed on the review page.

Once all details within a module have been reviewed, click Mark as Reviewed.
The Review IA Plans section appears, and the module is marked as reviewed.

A comment field appears. List changes needed or questions to answer. Then click Request Changes.
Comments are emailed to all IA staff with access to the SNAP-Ed National PEARS system. The status of the IA plan is listed as Changes Requested.
