When a prior folder exists and the adjudicating component failed to add essential
evidence to the current CEF, the review component should take action to add the essential
evidence to the CEF.
NOTE: It is not the responsibility of the review component to add essential evidence from
a prior folder or documents created or received by other offices to the CEF. Nevertheless,
during the course of quality review, if you determine that an office has failed to
add essential evidence from a prior folder or their documents to the CEF, the review
component must take action to add the essential evidence and documents to the CEF.
For instructions on adding documents to the CEF, see DI 81030.055.
If the review component determines that a particular office frequently does not add
essential evidence or documents to the CEF, contact the regional CD.
