When a promoter files a permit online, the regional rep has to approve it. Then paperwork gets sent to the promoter (or maybe I download the thing, I forget, I should check), the promoter signs it, and sends a physical copy back. Once the paper work is sent back you're good (as the promoter).
When you first file a permit you have to have a flyer. Problem is that the flyer can't have the permit number because it's pending, plus, unless you started and stopped a permit app, you don't know the pending permit number (year-number, like 2011-281). So initial flyers are listed as "permit pending". This is the status of a race that is not through with its permit process.
Later the flyer has to be updated, but for example I can't upload an updated flyer to a permit that's been approved (because I could upload a flyer that wouldn't be approved). So I have to ask someone at USAC to replace the flyer that says "permit pending" to one that says "2011-281" or whatever. I think if I change something on my permit then it'll be listed as pended.
In my brain haze I uploaded .docx file instead of pdf files. My permits got approved so now I have to ask USAC to replace the docx files with the pdfs. I realized this when I went to look at my flyers and I couldn't open them on our slightly older machines here at work.
I'm not an official nor do I know the workings of USAC, I'm just a promoter/racer.
