FY 2000 Unemployment Insurance Benefits, Timeliness and Quality (BTQ) Nonmonetary Determination Evaluation Training Seminars

1.Purpose.  To announce the FY 2000 BTQ Nonmonetary Determination Evaluation Training Seminars to prepare State Employment Security Agency (SESA) staff to administer the nonmonetary determination evaluation system.

2.References.  ET Handbook No. 301, Fourth Edition, Revised January 1998.

3.Background.  Due to the current high level of demand for training seminars, especially those which may be held outside the Washington, DC area, the FY 2000 training schedule is being issued now to aid in planning.

One seminar will be held each quarter for a total of four seminars annually. In order to maximize access, one annual session will be held in Washington, DC; the other three at various locations around the country.

4.FY 2000 BTQ Nonmonetary Determination Evaluation Training Seminars. Four sessions of approximately 25 participants each are planned as follows:

Date

Location

December 6-10, 1999 Charleston, South Carolina
March 6-10, 2000 Chicago, Illinois
June 19-23, 2000 San Diego, California
September 2000 Washington, DC

5.State Nominees. This training is designed to prepare nonmonetary adjudicators to participate in the quarterly tripartite quality reviews. It would also be useful for other nonmonetary adjudicators and Benefits Accuracy Measurement (BAM) investigative staff. (This is essentially the same training as has been provided for the past several years.)

Nominations for each session will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. SESAs may nominate potential participants for any session. Therefore, nominations should indicate the applicable session.

6.Logistics. Travel arrangements and travel and per diem costs for attendees are the responsibility of the nominee's employing agency. Hotel information for the first three sessions is attached. Logistics information for the other session will be provided at a later date.

7.Action Required. State Administrators are requested to notify appropriate SESA staff of the upcoming BTQ Quality training seminars and provide Regional Office staff with the name of each SESA participant who will be attending, no later than:

    November 12, 1999 for the Charleston, South Carolina session,
    February 1, 2000 for the Chicago, Illinois session,
    May 1, 2000 for the San Diego, California session, and
    August 1, 2000 for the Washington, D.C. session.

8.Inquiries. Inquiries should be directed to the appropriate Regional Office.
