All cases selected for QA review are routed to Disability Quality Branch (DQB). If
a case is selected for review, prepare an undated notice and/or personalized explanation,
fold it for mailing, place it under the flap of the appropriate envelope, and clip
it inside the right hand side of the folder for release by the reviewing component.
(See Preeffectuation Review (PER) and Quality Assurance (QA) Sample Cases – CDR Cases
Electronic versions of the undated notice/explanation should be uploaded to the Electronic
Folder (EF) and stored in the appropriate section (printed copies of the undated notice/explanation
should also be filed in the Modular Disability Folder (MDF)). (See DI 81020.000 DDS Procedures – Electronic Process.)
