The Control Area technician will batch and control the W-2c(s) in the Electronic Control
Workload System (ECWS). Each batch entered consists of a specific alert code for multiple
Employer Identification Numbers (EINs). If a listing has multiple alert codes for
the same EIN, the control area batches it as “W-2c Alerts-Mixed”.
The technician attaches an ECWS screen printout to the front of each batch. This printout
identifies the EIN, Social Security number (SSN) count, alert code, an automated batch
number, and the “assigned to” field (See Exhibit in RM 02032.080A, ECWS Control Sheet). The technician then manually transfers the automated batch
number to the control log sheet.
The Earnings Specialist (ES) verifies the number of items and EIN for each batch that
he or she retrieved, then manually annotates the control log sheet with his or her
name, unit number, and the current date.
The Control Area technician assigns each batch in ECWS to an Earnings Specialist (ES).
