GN BOS02607.531 Processing PUPS Alerts from the Vermont Department of Corrections Containing the Facility Code VT0012 (TN 2-96 -- 11/2004)
A. Background - Vermont Department of Corrections Facility Codes
The Vermont Department of Corrections (3VTP) confines inmates under its jurisdiction in one of the correctional facilities listed below in GN BOS02607.531D.
B. Policy - Assignment of Facility Code VT0012 to the Vermont Department of Corrections
3VTP confines some inmates under its jurisdiction in correctional facilities not under its direct control. These facilities can be located anywhere throughout the United States. 3VTP refers to these facilities as Out of State facilities (OOS).
Since the inmates in OOS facilities are still under 3VTP's jurisdiction, 3VTP must include these individuals on the regular monthly prisoner report it submits to the Social Security Administration (SSA).
To properly receive incentive payments for individuals confined in an OOS facility, 3VTP must use a unique facility code assigned to OOS facilities used by 3VTP. SSA has assigned the new facility code VT0012 to 3VTP for this purpose. A PUPS alert containing a facility code of VT0012 indicates that the individual is under 3VTP's jurisdiction and is confined in an OOS facility.
C. Procedure - Developing a PUPS Alert with Facility Code VT0012
If you need more information to process a PUPS alert containing the facility code VT0012, fax a request for information to:Vermont Department of Corrections/OOS
NOB 2 South
280 State Drive
Waterbury, VT 05671-2000
Provide the individual's inmate number on your fax request. The OOS Unit will provide you with the same information it provides for inmates in facilities under 3VTP's direct control.
If the facility code on a PUPS record is VT0012, ask the OOS Unit for the name of the facility where the individual is actually confined and annotate this information on the REMARKS screen on the appropriate PUPS record.
