Field Offices (FOs) require a system for testing the effectiveness of their referrals.
The Regional Office may find it advisable to periodically review or direct FO managers
to review with the voluntary or governmental agencies FO referral practices. Review
agency referrals to FO through meetings between the FO staff and the local agencies
for exchanging information and, where appropriate, make changes. Such exchanges may
also be a practical means for assuring that the required information in GN 00903.330 is up-to-date.
NOTE: Periodically, the FO staff may discuss referrals made and any problems, which have
arisen from them.
