Each forum contains a link to FMI's scoring sheet and discussion threads to capture comment on the associated scoring. To view results scroll down to the training provider you wish to review and select that forum for access to the scoring sheet file and comment section. You must be logged into the fmi.gov home page to comment or you may send comments to Askfmi@gsa.gov. Comments through other avenues will not be accepted. GSA does not seek comments related to the quality of the courses, that feedback is gathered from the federal agencies which identify the courses as a priority and end-user comments received through the Core Competency Web Tool. Comments should only relate to the color coded alignment of the training resource within the 2014 updated FBPTA core competencies. GSA will log and respond to all comments which might materially change our review i.e. the information is new or contradicts information provided by the resource provider. Note: In many cases, partial alignment of a performance will be interpreted as sufficient for specific personnel. Initial proposals for the courses were provided by course providers. Only competencies and related performances in which credit was sought were reviewed. FMI's assessment of proposed credit sought is located in the column titled "Based on technical review of learning objectives and skills, does this resource map to the performance criteria?" Color code applies as the following. 1. Green - the course aligns completely with the performance referenced 2. Yellow - the course is partially aligned as described in the comment 3. Red - the course does not align with the performance referenced
