If you have not received the prior paper folder, but it is necessary to perform the
QR, request the prior paper folder from the adjudicating component. Remember to correct
the paper folder indicator (PFI) and prior paper folder indicator (PPFI), if necessary.
If you do not receive the prior paper folder and decide that it is not necessary for
the QR, you can correct the PFI and review the case.
If the prior paper folder is necessary and you don’t receive it after contacting the
adjudicating component, exclude the case from sample review.
NOTE: For detailed information regarding PFIs and PPFIs, refer to operating instructions
in Paper Folder Indicators DI 81020.010.
