  1. Purpose. To announce the schedule for FY 2004 BTQ Nonmonetary Determination Evaluation Training Seminars.

  2. References. ET Handbook No. 301, Fourth Edition, Revised November 23, 2000.

  3. Background. To maintain a cadre of state staff trained in the quarterly nonmonetary adjudication quality review process, four training seminars are held annually at various locations across the country. This training prepares nonmonetary determination adjudicators to participate in the quarterly tripartite quality reviews and Benefits Accuracy Measurement/Denials Accuracy Measurement staff to accurately investigate and assess the quality of nonmonetary determinations.

  4. FY 2004 BTQ Nonmonetary Determination Evaluation Training Seminars. The following sessions, each for approximately 25 participants, are planned as follows:

    Date Location
    December 1-5, 2003 Charleston, South Carolina
    March 8-12, 2004 San Diego, California
    June 7-11, 2004 Dallas, Texas
    September 13-17, 2004 Washington, D.C.

  5. State Nominees. Nominations for each session will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. State workforce agencies (SWAs) may nominate potential participants for any session. Therefore, nominations should indicate the applicable session.

    Although this training is designed to prepare nonmonetary determination adjudicators to participate in the quarterly tripartite reviews, it is also useful for other nonmonetary determination adjudicators and Benefits Accuracy Measurement/Denials Accuracy Measurement investigative staff.

  6. Logistics. Travel arrangements and costs for attendees are the responsibility of the nominee’s employing agency. Specific information regarding the locations and hotels is attached. Persons with disabilities who wish to attend should send requests for accommodation to the appropriate Regional Office (RO).

  7. Action Required. State Administrators are requested to notify appropriate SWA staff of the upcoming BTQ Nonmonetary Determination Quality Review Seminars and provide RO staff with the name(s) of each SWA nominee and session requested.

  8. Inquiries. Inquiries should be directed to the appropriate RO.
