FY 2002 Unemployment Insurance Benefits, Timeliness and Quality (BTQ) Nonmonetary Determination Evaluation Training Seminars

 

  1. Purpose. To announce the schedule of the FY 2002 BTQ Nonmonetary Determination Evaluation Training Seminars.

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

  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 around the country. This training prepares nonmonetary determination adjudicators to participate in the quarterly tripartite quality reviews.

  4. FY 2002 BTQ Nonmonetary Determination Evaluation Training Seminars. The following sessions, each for approximately 25 participants, are planned as follows:

    Date Date
    December 3-7, 2001 San Diego, California
    March 4-8, 2002 Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
    June 3-7, 2002 Chicago, Illinois
    September 23-27, 2002 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 (BAM) investigative staff. Nominees should have prior nonmonetary adjudication experience. The training is not appropriate for brand-new employees.

  6. Logistics. Travel arrangements and travel and per diem costs for attendees are the responsibility of the nominee's employing agency. Specific information regarding the locations and hotels is attached.

  7. Action Requirement. State Administrators are requested to notify appropriate SWA staff of the upcoming BTQ Nonmonetary Determination Quality Review Seminars and provide Regional Office staff with the name of each SWA nominee and session requested, as the sessions fill very quickly.

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