DI 23501.060 Prisoner Case System Inputs and Routing
A. Disability Determination Service (DDS) System Input
Prisoner cases are a non-medical development exclusion, therefore, the DDS should not input the final disability determination. However, clearance control input is necessary to update the case control system.
B. DDS routing
All cases involving prisoners are to be routed to the field office (FO) for decisional input, and suspension action as required.
