Additional Revenue Quality Control (RQC) Program and Employment and Training (ETA) Form 581 Questions and Answers (Q&As) Unemployment Insurance Service

  1. Purpose. To provide answers to additional questions about the design and implementation of RQC and instructions for the revised Form ETA 581 (581).

  2. References. UIPL No. 16-94 (3/15/94), UIPL No. 31-94 (6/24/94), UIPL No.42-94 (8/16/94), UIPL No. 7/95 (12/20/94) and ET Handbook No. 401., 2nd Edition, Change 5 (10/11/94).

  3. Background. The RQC staff compiles questions and issues that arise during Regional and National Office (NO) monitoring trips, and from other sources to those questions believed to be of universal interest to the State staff implementing RQC. This set of questions is the fourth segment in the Q&A series.

    The revised 581 form has become effective January 1995 with the first report for the quarter ending March 31, 1995, due in the NO on May 20, 1995. In this set of Q&As, great emphasis has been placed on the revised 581 and RQC Computed Measures. Tax staff and RQC staff have worked closely in crafting the responses to questions and answering the additional concerns State Employment Security Agency (SESA) staff have raised on these topics.

  4. Questions and Answers. The Q&As are arranged by categories: (1) the 581 report and (2) each major RQC tax function. Numbering of the questions in each section is continuous. This format provides the necessary flexibility to allow periodic Q&A updates to be inserted in the appropriate section.

    There is overlap between 581 and RQC questions. Those that pertain to both the 581 and the RQC review are answered in the first section of the Q&A attachment. Those that pertain only to RQC appear in the second section of the attachment.

  5. Action Required. The SESA Administrators are requested to distribute the attached Q&As to the RQC Reviewers, SESA Tax staff, and appropriate Data Processing (DP) staff as well as the organizational unit staff responsible for the preparation and accuracy of the 581 report. Five copies are attached for your convenience.

  6. Inquiries. Direct inquiries to your Regional Office.

  7. Attachment. Questions and Answers Compilation.
