The review component should review the CEF to identify trailer material and UATs that
may have been received while the case is undergoing QR. This can be accomplished by
reviewing the date the document or UAT was received into the CEF. A gap between the
OQR sample date and the date an additional document or UAT was received into the CEF
generally indicates the presence of trailer material or UAT received after adjudicating
component case clearance. You can view the OQR sample date in the top frame of eView,
or you can identify it by using the “Query” function in OQR’s legacy system.
Any component can add a document to the CEF whether or not they have jurisdiction
of the CEF; however, only the component with jurisdiction of the CEF will be able
to take adjudicative actions on that case.
NOTE: The review component should not rely solely on checking the “CEF Received?” date
of documents under the Case Documents section in eView to identify trailer material.
The adjudicating component may send documents to the CEF during the closure process.
In addition, delays in the adjudicating component closure process (i.e., system problems)
may result in a “CEF Received?” date that is later than the OQR sample date. When
discrepancies are noted, the review component should also consider the information
provided on the adjudicating component Disability Worksheet, which is under the Case
Documents section, in Section F - Medical Records (Yellow Back).
